My Adventures With God

Enjoy a special evening

of live entertainment, as Steve performs

many of his greatest hits and shares the

fascinating stories behind them.

With more than 400 recordings and three Grammy and six Emmy Award nominations

to his name, Steve Dorff is one of the most successful songwriters and composers of

the last 25 years. His songs have been sung by chart-topping artists Barbra Streisand,

Ringo Starr, Celine Dion, Ray Charles, Whitney Houston, Smokey Robinson, Willie

Nelson, Gladys Knight, Dolly Parton and countless others. In addition to his 15 “Top

10” hits,” Steve’s legendary success also extends to motion pictures, theatre and

television (including the music for Growing Pains and Murder She Wrote).

In his newest book, I Wrote That One, Too…, Steve chronicles his four decades

behind the songs, sharing anecdotes, advice and insights into his journey. Full of

heartfelt stories, hard-earned wisdom, and delightful wit, I Wrote That One, Too... is

a great read not only for music lovers, but for anyone who has chased their dreams

and survived the surprising but often serendipitous turns in the road.

$25 in advance • $36 at the door • includes beverage

This event includes

a preview of all upcoming

Jewish Book Festival events,

with drawings for tickets,

books and more!

If you are not familiar with the name Stephen Tobolowsky, you will certainly

recognize his face! The quintessential character actor, Stephen has

appeared in more than 100 movies and 200 television shows, including

unforgettable roles in Mississippi Burning, Groundhog Day and Glee.

He is also the consummate storyteller – warm, funny and profound. My

Adventures With God, Stephen’s second book, is a collection of humorous,

introspective stories that tells of a boy growing up in the wilds of Texas

finding and losing love, losing and finding himself – all told through the

prism of the Torah and Talmud, mixed with insights from science, and refined

through a child’s sense of wonder.

My Adventures With God not only shines a light into the life of one of

America’s most beloved actors, but also provides a structure to evaluate our

own lives and relationship with God.

“These are true stories from my life. Most are funny. Some are not. They’re often

unbelievable, occasionally creepy. Together they tell a bigger story of how we

are shaped by the invisible. Something I call divine. Something I hope becomes

wisdom.” ~ Stephen Tobolowsky

$54 • Lunch and copy of book included • No tickets sold after December 1

Additional copies of My Adventures With God will be available for purchase, as the book makes a great Chanukah gift!


An Evening with Broadway Star

Alexandra Silber

After Anatevka – A Novel Inspired by

“Fiddler on the Roof ”

7:00 - 9:00 pm • Hilton Naples

Alexandra will blend

musical stylings with spoken

words from her book in a

theatre-like setting.

Sponsored by TheatreZone, WCA, Steinway Piano Gallery

After playing the role of Tzeitel in the most recent Broadway revival of

Fiddler on the Roof, and previously playing Hodel in London’s West End, Alexandra

Silber has written a book about what happens after Hodel leaves the stage.

The result is After Anatevka, a sweeping historical novel that continues the story

that has captivated fans around the globe for decades.

In a special hybrid of reading and performance – combining excerpts from the book

with a curated song list – Alexandra addresses the cultural meaning of Fiddler on

the Roof, her own personal connection with the show, and the process of writing

her remarkable new novel. Alexandra, with her accompanist on piano, will present

a fully dramatized mini piece of theatre.

The Huffington Post calls Alexandra “the fastest-rising soprano in musical theatre.”

In addition to the stage, she has appeared on television and film, and in concert,

including at Carnegie Hall. She received a Grammy nomination for her portrayal

of Maria in the recording of West Side Story with the San Francisco Symphony.

Alan Zweibel

For This We Left Egypt?

1:00 - 3:00 pm • Unitarian Universalist Congregation

Sponsored by Naples Jewish Congregation

Join us for an afternoon of humor as five-time Emmy Award-winner Alan

Zweibel entertains us with his jokes and stories. A television writer for

Saturday Night Live, Curb Your Enthusiasm and It’s Garry Shandling’s

Show, his theatre credits include collaborating with Billy Crystal on the

Tony Award-winning play 700 Sundays.

Alan has written several books, including Bunny, Bunny: Gilda Radner,

A Sort of Love Story, which he wrote following Gilda’s death. His novel

The Other Shulman won the 2006 Thurber Prize for American Humor.

He is one of the co-authors of For This We Left Egypt, a parody of the

Passover Haggadah, which he wrote with comedians Dave Barry and

Adam Mansbach. In this somewhat irreverent book, the authors take you

through the Seder, from getting rid of all the chametz in your home to

a retelling of the Passover story, including wrapping up the evening by

taking at least forty-five minutes to say good-bye to everyone.

Abigail Pogrebin

My Jewish Year – 18 Holidays, One Wandering Jew

2:30 - 4:15 pm • Beth Tikvah

Sponsored by Collier/Lee Chapter of Hadassah

MONDAY

$15 • $20 at the door

Although she grew up with some basic holiday rituals, Abigail realized how

little she knew about the origins, purpose and current relevance of the entire

Jewish calendar. She wanted to understand what had kept the oldest traditions

vibrant and the more-recently-added holidays urgent. She embarked on an entire

year of research, observance and writing about every ritual, fast and festival

in one Jewish year. Whether you’re seeking an accessible, digestible roadmap

for Jewish life or a fresh take on what you’ve been practicing for a lifetime,

Abigail’s journey will leave you educated, charmed and inspired.

Abigail Pogrebin is the author of Stars of David: Prominent Jews Talk about

Being Jewish, and One and the Same, about life as a twin. Her bestselling

Kindle Single, Showstopper, chronicled her teenage adventure in a rare

Sondheim flop on Broadway. A former producer for 60 Minutes and Charlie

Rose, she moderates her own interview series at the JCC Manhattan.

MONDAY

Two Significant (but Little-Known) Events in Jewish History

1:00 - 3:30 pm • Naples Conf. Ctr.

Robert Gandt • Angels in the Sky

Sponsored by Dr. Barrett Ross Ginsberg,

AJC West Coast Florida, Beth Tikvah and

Holocaust Museum & Ed. Ctr. of SWFL

Angels in the Sky is the exhilarating account of a ragtag band of volunteer

airmen from around the world who fought for Israel during the War of Independence.

Many, but not all, were Jewish. Knowingly violating their nations’

embargoes on the shipment of arms and aircraft to Israel, they smuggled in

Messerschmitt fighters from Czechoslovakia, painting Israeli stars over swastikas.

This modern-day David-and-Goliath tale, which is based on first-person

interviews and extensive archival research, is popular history at its best.

Robert Gandt is a former U.S. Navy fighter pilot, airline captain, and the

award-winning author of sixteen books on military and aviation history. His

screen credits include the CBS series Pensacola: Wings of Gold, adapted from

his naval aviation thriller, Bogeys and Bandits.

Bryan Mark Rigg • The Rabbi Saved by Hitler’s Jewish Soldiers

When Hitler invaded Warsaw in 1939, hundreds of thousands of civilians were

trapped in the besieged city. Rebbe Joseph Schneersohn, the leader of the ultra-

Orthodox Lubavitcher Jews, was among them. When word of his plight went

out, a group of American Jews initiated what would ultimately become one of

the strangest and most miraculous rescues of World War II. The Rabbi Saved

by Hitler’s Soldiers is the incredible but true story of this little-known event.

Bryan Mark Rigg is the author of Hitler’s Jewish Soldiers, which won the

prestigious William E. Colby Award, and Lives of Hitler’s Jewish Soldiers.

Reared as a Baptist Christian, he discovered he was of Jewish descent in 1992

and embraced his Jewish heritage. A graduate of Yale and Cambridge, he has

served as a volunteer in the Israeli Army and an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps.

Tuesday, March 20, 2018

at TwinEagles


A Fiction-Filled Afternoon with Two Bestelling Authors

1:00 - 3:30 pm • Temple Shalom

Pam Jenoff • The Orphan’s Tale

Sixteen-year-old Noa has been cast out in disgrace after becoming pregnant

by a Nazi soldier and forced to give up her baby. When Noa discovers a boxcar

containing dozens of Jewish infants bound for a concentration camp, she

snatches one of the babies and flees. Noa finds refuge with a German circus,

learning the flying trapeze act. At first rivals, Noa and lead aerialist Astrid soon

forge a powerful bond. As the facade that protects them becomes tenuous,

Noa and Astrid decide whether their friendship is enough to save one another.

Pam Jenoff is the author of The Kommandant’s Girl, an international bestseller

and Quill award nominee, as well as seven other novels. Jenoff’s novels are

based on her experiences working at the Pentagon and also as a diplomat for

the State Department handling Holocaust issues in Poland.

Gavriel Savit • Anna and the Swallow Man

Kraków 1939. A million marching soldiers and a thousand barking dogs. This

is no place to grow up. Anna is just seven years old when the Germans take

her father. She’s alone until she meets the Swallow Man: a skilled deceiver

with more than a little magic up his sleeve. Like Anna’s father, he’s in danger

of being taken. When he summons a swallow down to his hand to stop Anna

from crying, she is spellbound and follows him into the wilderness. Over the

course of their travels, the two will dodge bombs and tame soldiers.

Gavriel Savit holds a BFA in musical theater from the University of Michigan.

An actor and singer, Gavriel has performed on three continents, from New York

to Brussels to Tokyo. The Swallow Man, his first novel, won the 2016 Jewish

Book Council Award for Debut Fiction.

The Stories Behind Two Commanding Women

1:00 - 3:30 pm • Hilton Naples

Leslie Bennetts • Last Girl Before Freeway

Joan Rivers was more than a legendary comedian. She was an icon and role

model to millions, and a fearless pioneer who left a strong legacy when she died

in 2014. Her life was a roller coaster of triumphant highs and devastating lows:

the suicide of her husband, her estrangement from her daughter, her ferocious

ambition and massive insecurities. Rivers’ career broke down barriers for her

gender and pushed the boundaries of truth-telling for women in public life.

Last Girl Before Freeway is a juicy, intimate biography of a performer whose

career was borne out of a desire to make people laugh so she could feel loved.

Leslie Bennetts is the author of the national bestseller The Feminine Mistake as

well as a longtime Vanity Fair writer and former New York Times reporter. She

was the first woman to cover a presidential campaign at The New York Times.

Susan Silver • Hot Pants in Hollywood

Hot Pants in Hollywood is much more than a show biz memoir. It is about reinventing

yourself, finding love and creating a passionate life. From Milwaukee,

with its sixties’ values and normalcy, Susan went on to fame and fortune in

Hollywood. One of TV’s first female comedy writers, Susan’s credits include

The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Maude and Newhart. Through a continual search

for a productive life that included reconnecting with her Jewish roots and becoming

deeply involved with Israel, she eventually found a bigger life purpose.

Susan Silver, after reinventing herself in Jewish affairs, ran the Speakers

Bureau for ADL, was UN Observer for the Wiesenthal Center, and is currently

connected to Friends of the Israel Defense Forces. Susan has a radio

commentary on NPR and has numerous television appearances to her credit.

Peter Gethers • My Mother’s Kitchen

Peter Gethers wants to give his aging mother a spectacular feast featuring her

favorite dishes. The problem is he doesn’t know how to cook. So he embarks

upon an often hilarious and always touching culinary journey that will allow him

to prepare the meal of his mother’s dreams. When Judy Gethers, daughter of a

restaurateur – legendary New York Ratner’s – was in her 50s, she discovered a

passion for cooking. She became a mentor to famous chefs, including Wolfgang

Puck, and taught alongside Julia Child. Peter has written a memoir about how

food and family can do much more than feed us – they can nourish our souls.

Peter Gethers is an author, screenwriter, playwright, book editor, and film

and television producer. His eleven previous books include The Cat Who Went

to Paris, the first in a bestselling trilogy about his extraordinary cat, Norton.

Annabelle Gurwitch • Wherever You Go, There They Are

When Annabelle Gurwitch was a child, surrounded by a cast of epically dysfunctional

relatives, she secretly prayed that it was all a terrible mistake. She

longed to be part of a loving and supportive family. Gurwitch writes about the

family she tried to escape and the ones she joined by accident or on purpose,

including her southern ancestors, the theater tribe, and an adult summer camp

for vegans. If she’s learned anything, it’s that no matter how hard you try to

escape your crazy family, you just end up being part of another crazy family.

Annabelle Gurwitch is the author of the three books, including New York Times

bestseller I See You Made an Effort. She is a regular commentator on NPR

and a former host of Dinner and a Movie on TBS. Other numerous television

appearances include Boston Legal, Seinfeld and Murphy Brown.

JFCS of Southwest Florida and the Naples

A Trio of Debut Novelists

Sponsored by Beth Tikvah

1:00 - 3:30 pm • Naples Conference Center

Jane Healey • The Saturday Evening Girls Club

For four young immigrant women living in Boston’s North End in the early

1900s, escaping tradition doesn’t come easy. But at least they have one another

and the Saturday Evening Girls Club, a social pottery-making group offering

respite from their hectic home lives – and hope for a better future. The friends

face family clashes and romantic entanglements, career struggles and cultural

prejudice. But through their unfailing bond, they draw strength and the courage

to transform their immigrant stories into the American lives of their dreams.

The book is based on the true story of the Saturday Evening Girls Club.

Jane Healey was inspired to write The Saturday Evening Girls Club after

learning of the group’s history while researching an article on their namesake

pottery, also known as Paul Revere Pottery.

Sana Krasikov • The Patriots: A Novel

When Florence Fein abandons her middle-class Brooklyn Jewish family in

1934 for a steamer ship to the Soviet Union, she believes she’s seeking the

secular feminist promises that the Great Depression denied so many American

women. But once trapped in Stalin’s USSR, she suffers the travails of Soviet

Jewry through an American’s eyes. Decades later, her son Julian – an émigré to

New York – returns to Putin’s Moscow to redeem his mother’s betrayals. The

Patriots explores the entangled relationship of two superpowers as it played

out across three generations of one Jewish-American family.

Sana Krasikov was born in Ukraine and grew up in the Republic of Georgia

and the U.S. In 2017 she was named one of Granta’s Best Young American

Novelists. Her collection One More Year has won numerous awards.

Ellen Umansky • The Fortunate Ones

Vienna, 1939. Rose’s parents secure passage for their young daughter on

a kindertransport to England. After the war, grief-stricken Rose searches out a

piece of her childhood: the Chaim Soutine painting her mother had cherished.

In modern-day Los Angeles, Lizzie carries a burden of guilt. As a teenager,

Lizzie threw a party and the Soutine painting that had provided comfort after her

mother had died was stolen. The painting will bring Lizzie and Rose together,

and ignite a friendship, eventually revealing secrets that hold painful truths.

Ellen Umansky writing has been published in The New York Times, Slate and

Playboy, as well as in the short-story anthologies Lost Tribe: Jewish Fiction

from the Edge and Sleepaway: Writings on Summer Camp. She has worked in

the editorial departments of the Forward, Tablet and The New Yorker.

Renée Rosen • Windy City Blues

Windy City Blues, set in 1950s and ’60s Chicago, is the riveting story of Leeba

Groski, a young Jewish Polish immigrant, and Red Dupree, a black blues

guitarist who left the south to play in the burgeoning Chicago music scene.

Shunned by Leeba’s Orthodox Jewish family, Leeba and Red risk threats of

violence in an era in American history that frowned on mixed-race couples.

Renée skillfully reconstructs the racial tensions and vibrant music scene that

defined Chicago during those decades as she weaves this story of forbidden

romance into the history of Chess Records and the birth of the blues and rock

’n’ roll in Chicago.

Renée Rosen is the bestselling author of White Collar Girl, What the Lady

Wants, Dollface, and the young adult novel, Every Crooked Pot.

Marilyn Simon Rothstein • Lift and Separate

Lift and Separate is the story of Marcy Hammer, a Jewish woman forced to

restart her life after husband Harvey, the bra king, leaves her for a perkier fit.

Even though she is devastated by his departure, she still has her indomitable

spirit and self-respect. She has no intention of falling apart, either, even when

her adult children drop a few bombshells of their own, and she discovers a secret

about her new, once-in-a-lifetime best friend. Life may be full of setbacks, but

by lifting herself up by her own lacy straps, Marcy finds a way to begin again.

Marilyn Rothstein graduated with a journalism degree from New York University,

and worked for Seventeen. When she moved to Connecticut, she launched

an advertising agency, which she ran for more than 25 years. At the age of 43,

she became an adult bat mitzvah, achieving her lifelong goal of chanting Torah.
