Jewish Book & Arts Fair, Opening Night: Jonathan Alter

Jewish Community Center

The 38th Annual Jewish Book & Arts Fair at the Jewish Cultural Center offers a packed two-week schedule of authors, filmmakers, and comedians. Jonathan Alter, Newsweek senior editor and author of Conventional Wisdom Watch, kicks off the fair when he discusses his second book about an American president, The Promise: President Obama, Year One. Alter chronicles the first year of President Barak Obama’s administration from late 2008’s pre-inauguration through the passage of the health care reform bill in March 2010. In addition to his work with Newsweek, Alter is a contributing correspondent for NBC News and author of The Defining Moment: FDR’s Hundred Days and The Triumph of Hope.
