Jewish Book Week Running since 1952, Jewish Book Week is a unique annual festival that explores Jewish thought, life, history and literature. The nine-day festival, labelled by The Independent as "the capital's richest annual banquet of writers and ideas", invites an impressive degree of international talent year on year to Kings Place in order to engage with Jewish ideas and discuss a vast range of topics. This year takes the theme 'Life is an Open Book' and invites an array of speakers to share stories, reveal secrets and break conventions. Literature professor Josh Cohen explores how social networking and reality TV sees everything we do become public property, Andrew Sachs discusses his move from Berlin to England aged eight and how he survived British schools, and Ruby Wax launches her book Sane New World, a manual for mental health that explores how the mind works.

 

About Kings Place

Just 150 metres from King's Cross and St Pancras stations and with a waterside setting, the Dixon-Jones designed Kings Place combines the offices of The Guardian newspaper with a concert hall and two art galleries. As you'd expect from the architects behind the recent improvements to the Royal Opera House and National Portrait Gallery it's a well designed complex of curvaceous surfaces and appealing public spaces.
