Nashville Jewish Book Series Kicks Off

The Nashville Jewish Book Series kicks off the 2022/2023 series this month with two very different, yet equally exciting events.

On November 13, bring the family and join us for an event with author Nancy Churnin. Churnin, whose book Dear Mr. Dickens tells the story of a brave young woman who spoke up to the revered Charles Dickens about anti-Semitism in his books, will offer programming for both children and adults with a story time followed by an art project for kids and discussion for the adults. She will be joined by Committee Co-Chair Margaret Littman, author of It’s Her Story: Irena Sendler, and they’ll discuss the complexities of writing about difficult issues for children. Tickets for the event will be $5 and can be found at

December 8 brings an exciting event when the series continues in full swing at a secret location in East Nashville with local author Marissa R. Moss. The best-selling author will be in conversation with NPR’s Ann Powers to talk about Her Country, exploring the roles and perceptions of women in country music. The evening will also include a performance by singer-songwriter Katie Schecter. Tickets are $36 and will include light bites and drinks. Find more information at

The NJBS runs from November 2022 to May 2023. Find the full schedule, with registration and ticketing information, at
