Missouri’s Own at the Jewish Book Festival

November 12 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

$25

Hear short presentations from three headlining authors, plus meet five additional local talents who will share a sneak peak of their diverse books. Following the presentations, audience members will have the opportunity to meet each author “exhibition style” at tables around the room, to ask questions and have their books signed.

Michael A. Kahn
The Art of Conflict: Tales from the Courtroom

The Art of Conflict pairs each of five previously published articles on practical lawyering advice by an esteemed trial attorney with a fictional short story by an award-winning author-attorney on the same theme as that article. For fans of legal thrillers, this book offers a unique and compelling mixture of fiction and reality, written by a trial lawyer by day and award-winning author by night.

Beth Koritz
Resilience Road: Exploring Your Authentic Life Path

How many times have you taken a look at your life and thought “Things have got to change?” Well, Beth had said them before, but when she opened her eyes in the ICU, paralyzed from the neck down and facing a tremendous fight to regain very basic functions, she knew she finally meant them. With total honesty and refreshing humor, Beth introduces us to the tools and philosophies she has developed along the way (and now uses in her therapy practice) to living an authentic life on your own terms.

Making a Difference: The Story of Irl Solomon and the Difference One Teacher Made in the Schools of East St. Louis

Without giving it much thought, Irl Solomon, who had grown up in the middle-class inner suburbs of the Gateway City, took a job in the public schools of East St. Louis, which was losing much of its population and tax base to weeds, crime, and urban blight. By the late sixties, the East St. Louis school system had become one of the most dysfunctional in the nation. However, for 38 years, Irl committed to teaching in the schools east of the Mississippi. This is the story of how one man devoted his career and his life to making a difference.

Plus, hear from these additional local authors:
