In Their Own Words

In Their Own Words:
A Virtual Author Series

Focusing on international best selling authors in conversation with journalists, other authors and thought leaders, these professional, webinar style intimate discussions explore the author's writing process and their relationship with storytelling. Through these events, we hope to encourage reading and doing, and would love for groups of people to subscribe and form their own book clubs. Books are provided in partnership with The Ivy Bookshop -- thank you for supporting local small business!

Lauderdale, Houston, Indianapolis, Nashville, Memphis, Miami, Rochester, St. Louis, Jacksonville, Worcester, and Seattle. (Please note not all JCCs participate in all programs.)
