Silva kicks off San Diego Jewish Book Fair
LA JOLLA, California (Press Release) – The 18th Annual San Diego Jewish Book Fair, presented by the San Diego Center for Jewish Culture launches the largest Jewish Book Fair in the U.S.on November 3, 2012. Spanning nine days, Nov. 3 – 11, the fair is open to the public with tickets available online at http://www.sdcjc.org/sdjbf/index.aspx
With about 40 authors personally presenting, this is an opportunity to experience and hear, first hand, about titles that are sure to excite your interests. They range from tense international spy intrigue to delicious ethnic cooking, from Elizabeth Taylor to troubles with dating, from seeing the promise of Israel to overcoming anxiety, from classical art to the ancient Bible, from a soldier’s WWII retrospective to an historical stunner about Civil War General US Grant, from recovering from 9/11 to the Book of Job and many, many more.
Saturday, Nov. 3rd, 8:00PM TempleSolel (3575 Manchester Avenue,Cardiff by the Sea, 92007) North County presentations made possible by a generous grant from Leichtag Foundation.
The celebration kicks off with Daniel Silva, NYT best selling author, with 15 pulse-pounding spy and intrigue novels taken from tomorrow’s headlines, to his credit. His latest title, The Fallen Angel, reprises Gabriel Allon, art expert and wayward son of Israeli intelligence, who is working behind the walls of the Vatican, restoring one of Caravaggio’s greatest masterpieces. But while working in the conservation lab, he is summoned to St. Peter’s Basilica by his friend and occasional ally Monsignor Luigi Donati, the all-powerful private secretary to his Holiness Pope Paul VII. The body of a beautiful woman, a curator from the antiquities department, lies smashed and broken beneath Michelangelo’s magnificent dome. The Vatican police suspect suicide, though Gabriel, with his restorer’s eye and flawless memory, believes otherwise.

Our Book Fair titles have been published within the year or have been released for the first time in paperback in the past year. Proceeds from the sale of books support the programs of the San Diego Center for Jewish Culture.
During the Book Fair, Committee members are available to give advice to gift-seekers and offer recommended titles in each category: books by all the invited speakers, (which may include volumes published in previous years), books of fiction, books on religion, politics, music, and countless other topics, as well as about 500 children’s books, including all the new award-winning titles.
