Jewish Book Council Author Talks Return In-Person and on Zoom for 2023-2024

FJC is pleased to host a full schedule of events featuring non-fiction and fiction authors discussing their work and taking your questions. It's a diverse roster of accomplished authors on topics ranging from antisemitism to personal health and aging,  holistic approaches to veterinary care (and human companions), a Sephardic family story, Mel Brooks and the Birchers. Talks are free and open to the public. We partner with Eight Cousins, Falmouth's independent bookstore, for most talks and co-host with the Worcester JCC for some virtual talks. So join a talk, spend an hour of your day and come away with a fresh perspective on the world. We look forward to welcoming you.

Falmouth Jewish Congregation is pleased to welcome a new slate of Jewish Book Council authors in 2023-2024. Some are in-person, others virtual, on Zoom. FCTV sometimes broadcasts talks, as well.
