The J has hosted a Jewish Book Festival in November of each year for over three decades, during which time it has evolved to a festival that includes culture and arts of all kinds, but still anchored by authors. Arts Around Town: Jewish Book and Arts Festival offers the Ann Arbor community a unique opportunity to engage with talented authors and artists on a variety of topics. Along with a temporary book and gift store in the atrium at the J, this multi-week festival includes author talks, performances, film screenings, and a special Sponsor’s event both at the J and venues around town. The authors, peformers, and artists, or the topics and projects they explore, are Jewish or have significant Jewish connections. Most events are free and open to the public. Some events charge a nominal fee. Arts Around Town is supported by many local individuals, community organizations, and businesses. To become a sponsor, please contact the Director of Cultural Arts at the J. We look forward to seeing you at our author events.
