Anna Olswanger Announces New Website

Need a Jewish book author for your upcoming event? Check out, a new independent list site created by Anna Olswanger, author of Shlemiel Crooks.

The site, searchable by name, location, or genre, makes it possible for those who wish to arrange visits and signings with Jewish book authors to quickly find and connect with these authors worldwide. All authors listed on the site have agreed to participate and have provided their contact information, book titles, lecture topics, and areas of travel, and each listing contains links for purchasing the books mentioned. This site should prove invaluable for Jewish Community Centers, Federations, synagogues, book clubs, libraries, bookstores or any other group hoping to host a Jewish book author.
