Literature lovers were given the chance to come face-to-face with more than 100 wordsmiths at the Jewish Literary Festival (JLF) on Sunday 17 June.

The festival aims to promote constructive dialogue and discussion in the true spirit of Jewish life without promoting any single political or religious agenda.

Authors, poets, illustrators, journalists, writers and educators who have a Jewish connection or are engaged with subjects of Jewish interest came together for the event, including Lyndall Gordon, Stephanie Urdang, Damon Galgut, SJ Naude, Dennis Davis, Albie Sachs, Jennifer Friedman, Dr Eve, Diane Awerbuck, Jane Raphaely, Ken Barris, Ian Mann, Jennifer Ancer, Jonathan Ancer, Rosemund Handler, Mandy Wiener, Anton Harber, Nechama Brodie, Rahla Xenopolous, and Joanne Jowell.
