Jewish Book Week has become London’s non-party parliament, distinguished from the other one by people listening as well as talking. It’s the best.

David Hare

I love Jewish Book Week because, whether on stage or in the audience, it makes me feel smart and challenged at the same time.

Tracy Chevalier

For anyone who enjoys the free exploration of ideas and experiences, Jewish Book Week is sheer delight. Invigorating and inspiring, challenging and moving, it's food for the soul at a time when we all need inner nourishment.
