Nearby: MJCCA Book Festival Enters Last Weekend

Several MJCCA features remain in the last weekend, including presentations by Tony Danza and Michael Feinstein.


Looking for something to do this weekend? The end of the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta’s book festival has a few events here in Dunwoody to close out its 21st annual festival.

Tony Danza is scheduled to present his book Saturday “I’d Like To Apologize to Every Teacher I’ve Ever Had.”

The book is about a year the stage and screen actor spent in a Philadelphia school district’s teaching 10th grade English, and attests how hard is to keep kids engaged and how dedicated teachers are to their profession.

Check the schedule here and the box office website. Tickets are $18 for members and $24 for nonmembers.

On Sunday, the programs run through 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and includes a presentation by Jay Ladin, Kati Marton and Michael Feinstein.

Ladin’s “Through the Door of Life,” is about her transgender journey; Marton’s “Paris: A Love Story” is about love loss, and life after loss; and Feinstein’s book “The Gershwin’s and Me,” is about the legacies of Gershwins. He also performs some of their songs.
