Event description
Barnet Libraries Literary Festival welcomes: A morning with Pam Fox in conversation with Francine Wolfisz discussing Jews by the Seaside.

About this event

On Sunday 22 May 2022 from 11.30am - 1pm Barnet Libraries Literary Festival welcomes: A morning with author Pam Fox in conversation with Francine Wolfisz discussing Jews by the Seaside. Including a 15mins Q&A session.

There will be a bookseller in attendance and Pam will be on hand to sign books purchased.

Our booksellers would prefer payment for books in cash firstly and debit or credit cards secondly. We are asking this as there are intermittent signal issues within the library for their payment machines and we do not want any disappointed customers if you cannot purchase any books on offer for the literary festival.

The festival is likely to be extremely popular with a high demand for tickets. Please only book a ticket if you are 100% sure you will be able to attend on either the Saturday or Sunday.

This event is a ticket only, no ticket, no entry. You should either print your ticket or display it on your mobile device. All tickets will be checked before entry to the session.

Once the event is fully booked, there will be a waiting list for cancelled tickets.

Pam Fox is very involved in Jewish affairs and had a particular interest in Jewish social history and published several books. Pam contributed a chapter, ‘In the Footsteps of Lily Montagu’, and several short pieces to Rachel Kolsky’s guidebook, ‘Jewish London’.

In 2014, Pam published a full-length biography, Israel Mattuck, Architect of Liberal Judaism, which was nominated for an award by the Jewish Book Council in the US.

Her book, ‘The History of the Jewish community of Golders Green’ was published by the History Press in November 2016. It created widespread interest and she has given over 40 talks on this book.

In 2019 her book on the hundred-year history of the Rinkoff Jewish bakery in London’s East End, ‘History in the Baking: The Rinkoff Story’ was published.

Pam’s latest book, ‘Jews by the Seaside: The Jewish Hotels and Guest Houses in Bournemouth’ was published in October 2021.
