Howard Fast to Open Jewish Book Fair

The Nov. 10 opening
night speaker for the 28th
Annual Jewish Book Fair
will be author Howard Fast.
His new book, "The Estab-
lishment," concludes the
trilogy of books which
began with "The Immig-
rants," and was followed by
"Second Generation." With
masterly skill, Howard Fast
once more draws the reader
into the turbulent and
passionate affairs of the
family of Dan Layette, the
immigrant fisherman's son,

who made and lost two for-
tunes, and in spite of asso-
ciations with people of all
walks of life, still seems
most at home with the
rough and tumble of the
waterfront.
The trilogy is a depar-
ture from his previous
works which were historical
novels. "Romance of a
People," "Haym Solomon,"
"Unvanquished," "Citizen
Tom Paine," "Freedom
Road," "The American,"
"My Glorious Brothers,"
"Spartacus" and "Agrippa's
Daughter" are some of his
best-known books.
All of Fast's books have
been committed to the
ideals of freedom. He skill-
fully combines his Jewish
and American heritage in
his novels, which reflect
scholarly research in both
Judaic and American his-
tory. They are highly read-
able, full of excitement, ad-
venture, romance and a
keen desire for justice.

"The Man From There"
concerns a young Jewish
soldier from Tel Aviv,
wounded just before the end -
of World War II, who is
homeward bound on a train
from Cairo, when he hears
that Israel has declared its
statehood and his fellow
Jews are already defending
it. But he is still in Egypt,
and when the train is
halted, the soldier is trap-
ped in a small Egyptian
border town.
A fellow passenger, an
Egyptian doctor, protects
and hides him in
uoctor s fiancee.
-c
Ben-Ner was born in Kfar
Yehoshua in 1937. After
serving in the Israeli Army,
he studied at Tel Aviv Uni-
versity. He is a journalist
and movie critic and has
published short stories for
adults and children.
At 8 p.m. Nov. 11, the
men's clubs of Detroit
area synagogues and
temples will co-sponsor
Ulu app-oota•cazioll of Leon
Harris, author of "Mer-
chant Princes." He will
speak on "The Jewish
Merchants and the Arts."
"Merchant Princes" reve-
als the stories of many of
America's great Jewish
storekeeping families —
Strauses,
Gimbels,
Filenes,
Goldwaters,
Rosenwalds — how they
progressed from peddling to
riches, prominence and
power.
The grandson and son of
pioneer Texas merchants,
Harris tells with wit and
warmth about these men
and women who played
roles as significant in
America's history as the
subjects of his earlier books,
the aristocratic Cabots in
his "Only to God" and the

"The Fine Art of Political
Wit."
At 2 p.m. Nov. 11, the
Yiddish Committee of the
Jewish Community Center
will co-sponsor the appear-
ances of the two co-authors
of "Image Before My Eyes."
Lucjan Dobroszycki will
speak in English on
"People's Reactions to
`Image Before My Eyes' and
Barbara
Kirshenblatt-
Gmblett will speak in Yid-
dish on "Jewish Folklore
Through Photography."
"Image Before My
Eyes" is a photographic
history of Jewish life in
Poland from 1864-1939.
Its text, maps and hun-
dreds of pictures seem to
resurrect a society, cul-
ture and civilization now
completely vanished.
Drawing on the largest
collection of photo-
graphs of Polish Jewry in
the world, that of the
YIVO Institute for
Jewish Research, the
authors document every
facet , of the society of
Polish Jews, which was
the source of much that is
important in contempor-
ary Jewish life. •
Dr. Dobroszycki, who
catalogued the more than
10,000 pictures in YIVO's
Polish collection, is associ-
ate professor of history at
the Max Weinreich Center
for Advanced Jewish
Studies, YIVO, and author
of many works on Polish-
Jewish history.
Dr.
Kirshenblatt-
Gimblett, an ethnographer
and folklorist specializing
in the Yiddish culture of
Eastern Europe, is associate
professor of folklore and
folklife at the University of
Pennsylvania.
These programs are free
and open to the public. For
Book Fair information, call

Center Cultural Arts De-
partment, 661-1000, ext.
