The Book Festival of the MJCCA (Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta) is marking its 25th anniversary this November with an impressive lineup of authors.

Book lovers will be able to listen, meet, and interact with their favorite authors Nov. 5 – 20 in a variety of forums, including author meet-and-greets, book signings, a community read, panel discussions, and much more.

The opening night event will feature musician Kenny Loggins, who will discuss and read from his new children’s book, “Footloose.” Best-selling author Alice Hoffman will appear during a special book club event to talk about her latest, “Faithful.”

More authors slated to appear include Alyson Richman, Peter Bergman, Jeffrey Toobin, Christopher Noxon, Ina Yalof, Carson Kressley, Victoria Kelly, Thelma Adams, Ina Pinkney and bestelling author Jonathan Safran Froer talking about “Here I Am.”

The closing night event, the Eva and George Stern Lecture, will be given by Andy Cohen, host of Bravo TV’s Watch What Happens, talking about his new memoir, “Superficial.”
