More Information and Event Thumbnail image:
When Isaac Adams, a second generation American Jewish journalist, learns of plans for a Nazi group to stage a demonstration in Skokie, Illinois, he wonders what, if anything, his involvement should be.
Determined to find the truth, Isaac goes on a quest to find answers about his heritage, his mother, and himself.
Isaac questions a mixture of Jewish folk in his search - including his mother. Any seriousness is punctured with pop culture vignettes, recast with Jewish characters. The stars of Huckelberry Finn, On the Water Front and The Wizard of Oz, among others, become members of the tribe. It’s hilarious. But it drives his mother crazy.
James Sherman is the author of Beau Jest, This Old Man cam Rolling Along, From Door to Door amongst others.
