Ex-U.S. Ambassador Dennis Ross launches the JCC Festival of Jewish Books & Authors tonight with a reading from his The Missing Peace. Over the next two weeks, authors Joel Stern (Jewish Origami), Lawrence Kushner (Kabbalah: A Love Story), and Ruth Ellenson (The Modern Jewish Girl's Guide to Guilt) take part in the annual book fest. Tonight's program centers on Ross' blow-by-blow account of President Clinton's failed attempts to broker peace in the Middle East.
