In addition to Federman’s involvement, Friedman offered other highlights.
“David Page focuses on dishes forming America’s national cuisine in ‘Food Americana’ (with) each chapter addressing a specific food (such as) lox and bagels, sushi, pizza, and tacos with history, anecdotes, humor and a recipe. Israeli Yishai Sardi’s novel ‘The Memory Water’ relates the story of a young man with a growing and troubling obsession with the Holocaust. The New York Times selected the book as an Editor’s Choice and for its ‘100 Notable Books of 2020.’”
Friedman says the virtual events feature and author talk or interview coupled with a question-and-answer session. There is no charge, but participants must register for each event in advance at JewishDayton.org. Books, some with author-signed bookplates, will be offered at events as well.
