As Jewish Book Week moves towards its 70th annual festival in March, we present Jewish Book Weekend: a bite-sized version of London’s oldest literary festival. From Downing Street to Sunset Boulevard, the Rosenbergs to the Netanyahus, Vienna to Israel and MI6 to Mel Brooks, these ten events are the perfect taster for newcomers and a welcome return to that festival feel for regulars. With events in-person at Kings Place, online wherever you are or both, we are joined by leading novelists, broadcasters, historians and philosophers, as well as an exclusive evening of performances from a surprise star cast.
