who writes spy stories such as
his current work The Devil's
Spy and General Yehoshafat
Harkabi, professor and
former adviser to Begin, who
wrote Israel's Fateful Hour.

of authors and entertainers at
Book Fair have a Michigan

born here or live here. They
include: Arlene Kingston,

Judith Laikin Elkin, Ze'ev
Chafets, Rabbi Sherwin
Wine, Faye Moskowitz,
Lawrence Rudner and the
Michigan-based Readers
Theater which will perform
on Yiddish Night.
Last year was the first year
that video tapes were offered
at the fair, and more will be
available this year. "As the
video market expands, we
will be carrying more tapes,"
said Mrs. Silver.
Two female television per-
sonalities, Kitty Carlisle
Hart and Virginia Graham
Guttenberg, will be featured
with their autobiographical
works — Kitty and Life
Without Harry. Neal Gabler,
former co-host of "Sneak
Previews" talks about his
book, An Empire of Their

Own: How the Jews Invented
Hollywood. Ralph Martin,
author of the best-seller Jen-

"Approximately 67
organizations co-sponsor the
Book Fair," said Mrs. Kantor.
"This year B'nai B'rith's
Men's and Women's Councils
are hosting Arnold Forster,
author of Square One and the
chief attorney of the ADL
during its critical period. Our
volunteers come from these
co-sponsoring organizations
and just about everywhere.
People call all the time to
volunteer. The Book Fair
crosses organizational lines.
It's a great community
event," she said.
Hundreds of volunteers do
mailings, inventory, enter the
books on computer, count,
label, drive authors or take
them to dinner, sell or are
readers who read books the
year 'round. "In fact, prepara-
tion for Book Fair begins the
day after each fair ends," said
Mrs. Schneyer. "It is a year
`round project. We obtain
review copies of books, begin
reading, determine if books
are of Jewish content, get
several readers to give opi-
nions, decide if a book is
saleable, and if so, how many
copies to order, and if it is
really good, can we get the
author to be a speaker?" she
said.
The criteria for selecting
books and speakers for Book
Fair are that the author must
have written a book of Jewish
content between November of
last year and this year. "The
author doesn't have to be
