Jewish Book Week: See Jon Ronson For Free

Ronson: crazy everyday
To those uninitiated bibliophiles who didn't realise: you don't have to be Jewish to attend Jewish Book Week. You don't even have to have any money because the book fair is completely free (although you do have to pay for the books, sorry). Wander into the Royal National Hotel's Galleon Suite and you can browse the Foyles run bookshop at your leisure, mingle with the literati, try some kosher wine and pick up a menorah shaped jewellery stand all in one place.

A whole host of stellar events have already taken place but if you missed out on talks by Jonathan Miller, Susan Greenfield and Simon Schama among many others then never fear - Jewish Book Week is all web 2.0 - you can download them as podcasts.

And there's still time to get to an event. Perhaps Yiddish Cabaret for Saturday night or Alain de Botton for Sunday? Or try your luck with us as we've got 5 pairs of totally free tickets to giveaway to Jon Ronson's session on Sunday at 5pm, Tales of Everyday Craziness. You know, that bloke from the Guardian, fond of the irrational, sometimes on Radio 4. Just email us. Simple as that. First five to arrive bag the swag.

Jewish Book Week is in full swing at the Royal National Hotel, Bedford Way WC1 and runs until Sunday 1 March. Entrance to the book fair is free, book tickets for talks online.
