We hope you will join us for the all-online 2020 Ann Arbor Jewish Book Festival, celebrating Jewish authors and the stories they tell. For this 33rd annual festival, we will bring the community together online instead of in person to protect everyone’s safety, guests and authors alike. This is an opportunity to share even more authors with you than in previous years. Join us!

The J has hosted a Jewish Book Festival in the fall of each year for over three decades, during which time it has evolved into 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.

The authors, performers, 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.
