Join author Michael Sokolove for a conversation about his writing at Connie Morella Library.

Michael Sokolove is the author of five books, the co-author of four others, and a contributing writer for the New York Times Magazine. His book, Drama High: The Incredible True Story of a Brilliant Teacher, a Struggling Town and the Magic of Theater, was the inspiration for the NBC prime-time series “Rise.” His book The Ticket Out: Darryl Strawberry and the Boys of Crenshaw, is currently being developed by LeBron James’s production company, Springhill, for television. Sokolove has written on a wide range of subjects for the New York Times, including, frequently, national politics.

In all of his work, he dwells deeply on rich characters and the worlds they inhabit. The New York Times Book Review has praised him as “a natural literary stylist with the gifts of a social historian.”

In honor of Jewish American Heritage Month (May) Michael will talk about his career and how his Jewish background influences his writing and the subjects he chooses to tackle.

This month, we hope you will join us in celebrating the many contributions of Jewish Americans and that you will learn more about the history, culture, accomplishments, and diversity of the American Jewish community.

By celebrating heritage months, we learn about one another, we honor the richness of our diverse nation, and we strengthen the fabric of American society.

This event is cosponsored by Montgomery County Public Libraries and the American Jewish Committee.
