October 29 @ 7:30pm - 8:30pm

Two Graphic Novels:

A Con­tract with God: And Oth­er Ten­e­ment Stories by Will Eisner

Originally published in 1978, the book is described as a col­lec­tion of four short sto­ries based on Eisner’s child­hood mem­o­ries. An inti­mate por­trait of immi­grant life in the 1930s Bronx, it is an homage to a vanished worldnot a glo­ri­fied past, how­ev­er, but a past with all its faults and ugli­ness. The trag­ic main charac­ters are all des­tined to fail, and each sto­ry presents a sur­pris­ing twist at the end.

The Flying Couch by Amy Kurzweil

Described as a third generation Holocaust novel, the Jewish Book council calls it, “an extra­or­di­nary tapestry woven from both painful and uproar­i­ous fam­i­ly sto­ries, dream­scapes, and oth­er sur­re­al flights of fan­cy (such as sequences in which the patri­arch Jacob, Freud, and Her­zl appear before the young artist with their incom­pat­i­ble agen­das) and poignant episodes from Amy’s own Bildungsroman.”

$2.00 suggested donation per guest.
