Collingswood event will feature Jewish authors

The 14th Annual Collingswood Book Festival is continuing through Oct. 1. Festival-goers will have an opportunity to stroll more than six blocks of the main street filled with nationally recognized authors/speakers for adults and children, as well as booksellers, storytellers, poetry readings, workshops, exhibitors and performance stages. All events are free.

Among the Jewish authors being featured during the Festival are: Zahav Chef Michael Solomonov, debut author Andy Abramowitz, “100 Things to Do in Philadelphia Before You Die” author Irene Levy Baker, journalist Matt Katz, author of “American Governor: Chris Christie’s Bridge to Redemption,” and Voice columnist Sally Friedman.

The Collingswood Book Festival is run entirely by volunteers. To continue the Festival for generations to come, organizers are inviting new volunteers. Every year, dozens of volunteers give their time and talent to help make the event a success. Starting in April, organizers meet on the first Wednesday of the month.
