The new season for the Jewish American Writers Series will begin on Sunday November 9th at The Cornelia Street Cafe. This year I’ll be joined by two co-hosts, Debra Goldberg and Deborah Greenhut who will help to curate future readings.

For this first event the hosts will also be the featured readers: Goldberg, Greenhut and Goldfin.

There will be drama, prose and song (I’ll be joined by composer Oren Neiman and actor Mike Finesilver in a few songs from THE LAWS OF MOTION.) Please join us if you can.
