Marvin Lowenthal, director of
the Brandeis University Library
and lecturer in the School of
Humanities, will be speaker at
the opening session of the Jew-
ish Community Center's eighth
annual Jewish Book Fair, an-
nounces Morris Garvett, Book
Fair chairman.
The Book Fair runs Saturday
through Monday, Nov. 21-23, at
the Main Center, 18100
Meyers.
Lowenthal is an historian,
editor, foreign correspondent,
and writer for leading period-
icals. Living abroad for many
years, he enjoyed unique oppor-
tunities in his various editorial
and political posts to study civ-
ilization and contemporary life
in Europe, North Africa and the
Middle East. As the result of
his historical training, Lowen-
thal has a flair for detecting
events by the shadow they cast
before them.
As early as 1922 he warned
against the imminent danger of
a nationalist dictatorship in
Germany. He has often ap-
peared on the CBS program
"Invitation to Learning" and has
been a steady contributor to the
literary section of the New York
Herald-Tribune. He has lectured
regularly across the United
States and Canada. At present
he is working on a series of
biographical themes dealing
with turning points in American
civilization.
Lowenthal is author of "This
Was New York: The Nation's
Capital in 1789," "The Auto-
biography of Montaigne," "A
World Passed By," "Our Fathers
That Begat Us," "The Life and
Letters of Henrietta Szold,"

"The Jews of Germany: A Story
of Sixteen Centuries."
An exhibit of original etch-
ings and lithographs of Marc
Chagall to be shown in the
Harold C. Allen Adult Lounge
of the Jewish Center, is in
conjunction with the Book
Fair to be held at the Center
November 21-23. It features
over 50 prints from the
famous Chagall biblical series
of etchings.
Marc Chagall, now living in
Israel, was born in Vitebsk.
Russia, in 1887: He studied in
Paris and exhibited at the Salon
of Independence. His style is an
alliance between naturalism and
magical fiction.
"Afternoons with Jewish
Books" will be the November
series of Monday afternoon
Jewish Folklore Time pro-
grams for older adults of the 4‘
Jewish Center, 18100 Meyers. "
The series will include dis-
