Dr. Ruth Westheimer at the MJCCA Book Festival

The Doctor is In!

Join us for a book talk with Dr. Ruth Westheimer at the 24th Edition of the Book Festival of the MJCCA! 


The Esther G. Levine Community Read: Presented to honor Esther Levine and her many contributions to the Book Festival of the MJCCA

LOCATION: 5342 Tilly Mill Road, Dunwoody

Everyone knows Dr. Ruth as the most famous and trusted sex therapist, but few people know she narrowly escaped death from the Holocaust, was raised in an orphanage in Switzerland, or that she was a sniper during Israel's War of Independence. After years spent as a student in Paris, Dr. Ruth came to America dreaming of a new life though never expecting the dramatic turns that would take place. And at the age of eighty-seven, she is as spirited as ever.

Through intimate and funny stories, Dr. Ruth sheds light on how she's learned to live a life filled with joie de vivre. And she shows readers how they too can learn to deal with tragedy and loss, challenges and success, all while nourishing an intellectual and emotional spark, and, above all, having fun! Hilarious, inspiring, and profound, The Doctor Is In will change the way you think about life and love, in all their limitless possibilities.

This event will start at 7:45 PM.
