The Boulder JCC is proud to be part of a consortium of Jewish Community Centers from across the country to present over 30 authors this fall. From their living rooms to yours, LitFest brings together many New York Times Bestselling authors to share their process, inspiration, and details on their latest books. Readers from all over the country will be able to hear a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction authors, celebrities, and memoirists share their stories. Our line up includes journalists, several Pulitzer Prize winners, National Book Critics Circle Award-winning authors, and a National Jewish Book Award winner.
