See You in St. Louie
October 2, 2019
The first official event of the Bobby in Naziland reading tour, 2019-20, will take place at Subterranean Books, in St. Louis, on Wednesday, October 16, at 7 PM. I'll be reading from chapter one, "The Goyim and the Jews," which sets the scene for the book and gives the reader a sense of what it was like to be in Flatbush, in the 1950s and 60s, when a significant portion of the population of this provincial Brooklyn neighborhood was comprised of Holocaust survivors and World War II vets who'd fought the Nazis.
This will be followed by a Q&A. If there's still time after the questions, for my encore, I'll read part of the Beatles section, from chapter 18, "Something Different Happened."
So, bring yourselves, bring your questions, bring your friends and family. I'm looking forward to seeing you in St. Louie.
An expanded edition of this newsletter will appear next week as a "Far From Flatbush" blog post.
