Pozez JCC: Jean Meltzer

Pozez Picks Author Talk with Jean Meltzer on Kissing Kosher (In-Person)
In partnership with A Woman’s Voice 
Wednesday, September 13, 1pm-2:15pm 

From the local author of The Matzah Ball comes a romantic comedy for fans of You’ve Got Mail, about the heirs to two rival Jewish bakeries in Brooklyn whose competitive history turns into long-lasting love.

The heir to a kosher baked-goods empire goes undercover at a family-owned Jewish bakery in order to steal their world-famous Pumpkin Spiced Babka recipe. But when garnering the secret recipe means drawing closer to the granddaughter working the counter—a woman struggling with intimacy issues due to chronic pelvic pain—both come to discover that the best recipe for love, intimacy and babka… is the one you bake yourself! A book sale and signing will take place after the presentation.

Speaker Bio:  Jean Meltzer studied dramatic writing at NYU Tisch and has earned numerous awards for her work in television, including a daytime Emmy. She spent five years in rabbinical school before her chronic illness forced her to withdraw, and her father told her she should write a book―just not a Jewish one because no one reads those. She’s the author of The Matzah Ball, Mr. Perfect on Paper, and Kissing Kosher.
