The next author at Max and Benny's popular Chicago Jewish Authors Literary Series will be Barbara Froman. The free event takes place in the Back Room of the restaurant on Monday evening, August 6, at 7:00 pm. Come early and eat. As always, complimentary cookies and coffee will be available. Ms Froman has written a delightful novel entitled Shadows and Ghosts. Her protagonist, Ida Mae Glick, is a critically acclaimed filmmaker whose trials and tribulations remind you of a character that you mind find in a Woody Allen movie or a Phillip Roth novel. The book even has a Jewish mother ghost who haunts her beloved daughter. Shadows and Ghosts was the Prose winner of the First Book Contest sponsored by the MFA in Creative Writing Program at Fairleigh Dickinson University and Serving House Books. We would appreciate if you would let Richard Reeder know ahead of time if you plan to attend by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone him at 847-542-4624.
