Isaac Mizrahi will open the Jewish Book Festival on Sunday, November 3 at 7pm. Mizrahi will speak about his new book, I.M.: A Memoir, in which the fashion industry leader offers a poignant, candid and touching look back on his life so far. From growing up gay in a sheltered Syrian Jewish Orthodox family to the partnership with Target that brought his high-end collection to the masses and revolutionized fashion retail, Mizrahi will share not only the glamour of his years but the grit beneath the glitz.
