 On Nov. 9, Smith will be in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Calif., for the San Diego Center for Jewish Culture’s 20th Annual San Diego Jewish Book Fair. Smith will discuss Testimony at Temple Solel at 7:30 p.m.

The following day, Nov. 10, Smith will be in Houston, Texas, for Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center of Houston’s Ann and Stephen Kaufman Jewish Book & Arts Fair. He will present at 8 p.m.

Through behind-the-scenes photos and exclusive interviews, Testimony tells the complete story of the making of Schindler’s List followed by the founding and first 20 years of the USC Shoah Foundation. Testimony was made possible with the generous support of Ruth & Steven Katz and Deborah & Wayne Zuckerman in honor of Abraham & Millie Zuckerman and as a tribute to the legacy of Oskar Schindler. It is available in bookstores everywhere and on Amazon.
