The Cherie Smith JCC Jewish Book Festival will warm up your winter nights with an exciting roster of writers from across Canada, the US, Israel and New Zealand. This is one of Vancouver’s leading cultural and literary events, attracting a large and varied audience of over 5,000 people of all ages.

JCC Jewish Book Festival

When: February 9-14, 2019
Where: Most events take place at the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver (950 West 41st Ave at Oak), as well as in outreach locations in the Lower Mainland.

This highly popular community-wide event brings together prominent and emerging Jewish writers and non-Jewish writers on Jewish subject matter.

The six days of the Festival are packed with inspiring and entertaining literary events including unique meet-the-author opportunities, readings and panel discussions, the annual book club event, children’s and youth authors, wellness and food subjects and two onsite bookstores – new and used, open throughout the week. There is something of interest for every age group and literary taste.

Win Tickets

Cartoon Mike Reiss and Mike Reiss!

​I have tickets to give away to the closing night presentation featuring Mike Reiss, author of “Springfield Confidential: Jokes, Secrets and Outright Lies From a Lifetime Writing for The Simpsons“!

Four-time Emmy winner Mike Reiss—who has worked on The Simpsons continuously since episode one in 1989—shares stories, scandals, and gossip about working with America’s most iconic cartoon family ever. Reiss explains how the episodes are created, and provides an inside look at the show’s writers, animators, actors and celebrity guests.
