Survival, friendship and humor are among the subjects featured at the 14th annual Jewish Community Alliance Jewish Book Festival in November.

The goal is to educate the community about Jewish literature, to stimulate discussion regarding current Jewish issues, history, philosophy and literature and to provide access to Jewish books, a news release said.

All programs start at 7:30 p.m. at 8505 San Jose Blvd. and are followed by dessert, a book sale and signing. Except for the patrons' event, they are free to the public.

From the co-author of "The Last Lecture" comes a moving tribute to female friendships, the release said.
