Award-winning author, Jan Baross, will be sharing her latest novel, “Bye-Bye Bakersfield,” an entertaining novel with a decidedly Jewish theme and Jewish perspective on the world. It was recently awarded First Place in the International San Miguel Writers Competition, 2022.

Dredged from the cultural abyss of the 1950s in Bakersfield, CA, “Bye-Bye Bakersfield” is a novel that tells the subtle, funny and often poignant story of a little Jewish girl who confronts a hostile landscape when her parents move to redneck central.
