Book Festival Closing Night: Michael Schulman
Join us for closing night of the Ann and Stephen Kaufman Jewish Book & Arts Festival featuring Michael Schulman and his book Oscar Wars: A History of Hollywood in Gold, Sweat and Tears.
America does not have royalty. It has the Academy Awards. For nine decades starlets, leading men and producers have chased the elusive Oscar. This lively history of the Academy Awards focuses on the brutal battles, the rivalries and the colorful behind-the-scenes drama. Featuring a star-studded cast of the most powerful Hollywood players, as well as outsiders, this book is a collection of tales, representing a turning point for the Academy, for the movies and for the culture at large.
Inspiring and entertaining, the Ann and Stephen Kaufman Jewish Book & Arts Festival annually delivers a variety of opportunities for the community to learn and experience Jewish literary, culture and performing arts. The Festival is one of the city’s leading cultural and literary events, attracting a large and varied audience of all ages and is recognized as one of the largest Jewish Book & Arts Festivals in the nation.
