October 22, 2020 - June 6, 2021

We are excited to offer so many wonderful book events this year, with so many options. You can choose an All Access Pass, tickets for an entire series or select individual events.  You can also purchase the books from Tombolo’s website.  Links are provided in the section below.

When purchasing JCC Literary consortium tickets, please note that you will be directed to a specific consortium website called Showclix. You will be purchasing these tickets separately from your Books & Conversations Festival tickets.
