Optimism

Continued from Preceding page

parent rehabilitation of
Syrian President Hafez al-
Assad in the eyes of the ad-
ministration.
Only a year ago, he was
regarded as a vicious dic-
tator who ranked with
Saddam Hussein and
Muammar Qadaffi; he was
the man ultimately respon-
sible for the grisly fate of
Pan Am flight 103, the chief
governmental sponsor of
international terrorism.
Now — both here and in
Israel — Mr. al-Assad is be-
ing compared to Anwar
Sadat because of his surpris-
ing decision to accept the
terms of the Baker peace
proposal.
There is also an undercur-
rent of concern about the
role of the Soviet Union in
the emerging peace process.
Is the joint U.S.-Soviet in-
vitation to a peace con-
ference a harbinger of an al-
liance that will put increas-
ed pressure on Israel.
Friends here of the Jewish

state, with their traditional
fear of solutions imposed
from the outside, regard this
prospect with alarm.
Nobody here is discounting
Mr. Baker's achievement in
setting up October's peace
conference. But nobody is
predicting that the route to
the peace table will be a
smooth one, or that the in-
itial meetings will produce
dramatic results.
And if more traditional
Middle Eastern realities
assert themselves in the
midst of the hopeful at-
mosphere created by Mr.
Baker's whirlwind diploma-
cy, pro-Israel activists want
to be ready to move in to
limit any backlash against
Israel.
"There is a very upbeat
mood here," said Jess
Hordes, Washington director
for the Anti-Defamation
League. "But there is also a
healthy dose of reality. This
is not going to be an easy
process."

FRIDAY, AUGUST 9, 1991

F

or Adele Silver, Ellen
Yashinsky and many
others, work on the
40th annual Detroit Jewish
Book Fair started the day
after the 39th ended.
Book Fair, which will be
held this year Nov. 9-17 at
the Maple-Drake Jewish
Community Center, is an
ongoing process that in-
volves, among other tasks,
the job of bringing in guest
authors as speakers.
From May 31 to June 4,
Ms. Silver, the JCC's direc-
tor of cultural arts, and Ms.
Yashinsky, the Book Fair's
co-chairman, took a trip with
other volunteers to the
American Bookseller's Con-
vention. They met with
publishing houses,
publishers and anyone else
who could help them lit-
erally "book" their Book
Fair.
The books they are after
have to be of Jewish content
and must be published bet-
ween November 1990 and
November 1991. To find
their books and their
speakers, the Detroiters
spent their first day collect-
ing catalogs from every sin-
gle publishing house at the
convention. They returned
to their hotel rooms that
evening and pored through
the catalogs, making note of

the books with Jewish con-
tent.
Then came the job of con-
tacting publishers and fin-
ding out if an author is
available to speak and if
that author will come to
Detroit without an
honorarium. The author's
travel expenses are,
however, paid.
Some of the authors al-
ready committed to Book
Fair this year include: Ruth
Gruber, Ahead Of Time; Let-
• ty Cottin Pogrebin, Deborah,
Golda And Me; William
