Elaine Schonberger, Teri Sinkoff and Sandy Stark get ready for Book Fair.

(ritual bath). Photos from their book
of the same name will be on display at
the gallery throughout Book Fair.
Special events this year include a
concert in West Bloomfield on
Saturday, Nov. 16, by the all-women
klezmer group Mikveh and children's
events at both JCC locations.
Lily's Crossing, Sunday, Nov.
10, at JPM and geared for chil-
dren ages 6 and older, is a live
theatrical performance about a
young girl who befriends an
orphaned refugee in war-torn
Hungary in 1944.
Children ages 8 and younger will
enjoy hearing Lorraine "Rainey"
Friedman read her latest book, Jerome's
Jam, Sunday, Nov. 17, in West
Bloomfield. This is the perfect story to
help big brothers and sisters under-
stand the upside of belonging to a
growing family.
Book Fair's family programming in
West Bloomfield also includes a per-
formance of "Women of the Bible" by
the Festival Dancers, the JCC's resi-
dent dance company, on Sunday, Nov.
17, followed by a reprise of Shhhema
and Sweet Dreamzzzz. For ages 8 and

younger, this program offers ways to
create a meaningful Jewish bedtime
experience and will be filled with sto-
ries, songs and activities. Children may
wear Pis, and single-parent families are
especially invited to participate.

Planning Book Fair

Nearly a year in the planning,
Book Fair comes together again
under the capable leadership of
Book Fair Director Elaine
Schonberger. •
The first thing a visitor sees upon
entering Schonberger's office is a cork-
board covering much of one wall.
Measuring roughly 4 x 3 feet, its 80-
plus sections strewn with colorful
sticky notes, the board is the heart of
Detroit's annual Book Fair.
"That's where Book Fair begins,"
Schonberger says with a smile.
Embarking upon her third year as
Book Fair director, Schonberger has
her system down cold.
"I work with that board on a daily
basis, switching authors, changing
dates and times," she says. "After a
week or two, I have it memorized and

begin to see it in my sleep."
Heading up the nation's oldest and
largest Jewish Book Fair is no easy feat.
Forty participating authors must be
culled out of hundreds of hopefuls.
"We like to have a variety of books
and authors and subject matters —
something for everyone," Schonberger
"We have a wonderful committee of
very dedicated individuals who read
the books and make recommendations.
Fortunately, we are well known in the
industry. Publicists love to have their
authors come here."
Schonberger is proud that Detroit's
Jewish Book Fair has launched several
writing careers, notably that of mystery
writer Faye Kellerman.
The fair also has boosted the writing
careers of Detroit Jewish authors at its
local author fair, now in its seventh
year This year's gathering, with 20
authors, will take place Sunday, Nov.
10, in West Bloomfield.
Schonberger is grateful not only for
Detroit's national presence in the
world of Jewish book fairs but also for
the ongoing support of the local com-
munity. This year, 70 organizations
