Litquake, San Francisco’s annual literary festival, comes to Berkeley’s Allston Way. The day starts at The Magnes with the appearance of Rabbi Joshua Plaut, author of A Kosher Christmas: ‘Tis the Season to be Jewish (Rutgers, October 2012). "With humor and insight Rabbi Joshua Plaut, Ph.D. recounts the meaning of Christmas to American Jews. This 'only in America' account should be read by Jews and non-Jews alike but especially by those of us who have always felt a little bit guilty for enjoying Christmas." —Alan Dershowitz, professor of law, Harvard University.
