Festival Program Announced!

Filed under: New Yorker Festival

Not that festival—the schedule doesn't go public till the 28th. No, I mean the St. Louis Jewish Book Festival in November, which will be like a mini-New Yorker Festival after the fact, in that a staffer will be one of the headliners. Perfect for relieving your withdrawal symptoms after the October excitement! Read on (from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch):

I AM DENNY CRANE: William Shatner, whose latest incarnation as a pop culture hero is just as surprising as how funny he is on "Boston Legal," will headline the 28th annual Jewish Book Festival on Nov. 5. He will be jetting into St. Louis to speak at 5:30 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center on Millstone Campus Drive. After his appearance, Shatner will autograph copies of his latest book and then head to the festival's patron dinner at the Sheraton in West Port. Shatner's career has spanned more than 50 years. He played Capt. Kirk in "Star Trek." Tickets for the Shatner presentation are $35. The festival will run for 11 days and will feature 33 authors, including such notables as our town's Danny Meyer and New Yorker magazine's Mideast Bureau Chief, Jeffrey Goldberg.
