Jewish Book Week hunt for new director

By Jessica Elgot, October 27, 2011

The director of Jewish Book Week will step down following the 2012 festival after seven years in the post.

Geraldine d’Amico said it was “the longest I had ever been in a job” and hoped to go out with “the most successful year ever”.

Book Week chair Gail Sandler said: “It’s a wonderful, creative job and she has really given it her best. She will not be an easy act to follow.”

JBW has launched a search for a new director.
