My new graphic novel CHASING ECHOES drops on Nov 13th… and I’m doing two events in Southern California before the Thanksgiving holiday kicks off. The book is a story of generations of survivors surviving each other… specifically the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors and how they reconnect with a lost link to their own history. I wrote it, my friend George Schall lovingly drew it, and now its ready for the world:
First off, the launch event at Skylight Books, my favorite LA bookstore, followed by an event in San Diego at the illustrious Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore.
Tuesday, November 13 @ 7:30 p.m.

Weds, November 14 @ 7pm

A little more about the story:
Malka, the black sheep of her family, learns that her relatives are making a decades-in-the-planning pilgrimage to their grandfather’s pre-Holocaust home in Poland…and she wasn’t invited. After guilt-tripping herself a ticket as the self-appointed “Keeper of the Family Archives,” it becomes clear that everyone’s brought more baggage than just their suitcases.
Chasing Echoes is a heartfelt tale about dysfunctional family dynamics, the ghosts of war and what brings us back together.
