OK FAIR '91

Detroit gets ready for its 40th anniversary Book Fair
at the Maple/Drake JCC.

PHIL JACOBS

Managing Editor

R

abbi Abraham
Twerski literally
wrote the book on
the issue of spiritu-
ality and drug
abuse rehabilitation. The fact
is, he's written several of
them.
A Chasidic rabbi and the
founder of Gateway Rehabili-
tation Center in Pittsburgh,
Rabbi Twerski transcends
the world of the religious
Jew into the world of the
drug abuser. Those with the
abuse problem look beyond
the beard and the deep, heal-
ing eyes. They listen because
he helps them.
Rabbi Twerski will be
speaking about his newest
book, I Would Like To Call For

Help But I Don't Know The
Number, on Thursday, Nov.
14, beginning at 8 p.m. at
the Maple-Drake JCC.
The rabbi's presentation is
one of some 33 at this year's
40th annual Jewish Book
Fair. All the events, in-
cluding the book sale, will
take place at the West

Bloomfield JCC. The Book

Saturday, Nov. 9 when U.S.
Senator William S. Cohen
will speak on his latest
novel, One-Eyed Kings.
Sen. Cohen was elected to
to the U.S. Senate in 1978
from Maine. He serves on
the Armed Services and
Governmental Affairs
Committees and on the Spe-
cial Committee on Aging.
One-Eyed Kings is a nail-
biting thriller that combines
espionage, superpower ten-
sion and a few literary curve-
balls along the way. The set-
ting is the West Bank.
The Book Fair will then
kick off in full force, 9:30
a.m., Sunday, - Nov. 10. (See
schedule below). Sunday's
first speaker will be at 11
a.m. when author Ira
Wolfman talks about his
book, Do People Grow on

is no scheduled replacement
at this time. Mr. Frommer
and his wife Myrna were
also scheduled to speak on
Monday, beginning at 10

Happened in the Catskills.
Instead, author Shelby

Yastrow will be speaking on
the book Undue Influence.

For those who received the
Book Fair program in the
mail, there are three impor-
tant schedule corrections to
note. On Sunday, Nov. 10, at

author of Holzman on Hoops
will not be speaking. There

Nov. 16. He will be replaced
by comedian Joey Russell.
An admission of $10 will be
charged for this event.
Senior citizens and students
will be charged $7.50.
Everything else is on
schedule, according to JCC
cultural arts director Adele
Silver. Ms. Silver said the best
way for a fair goer to make the
Book Fair user-friendly is to
go ahead and ask one of the
many fair volunteers where
a certain type of book can be
found.
"A person shouldn't go
away empty-handed, espe-
cially if they can't find a
specific title," Ms. Silver
said. "Please, ask one of our
volunteers. If they can't help
you, they'll get a chairper-
son to help you."
Also, Ms. Silver said if a
person's schedule allows, he
should try to make it to the
Wednesday, Nov. 6 preview
where volunteers will re-
view many of the books that
will be sold at the Book Fair.
The review session begins at
9:30 a.m.
This year over 4,000 books
will be presented to the
