Jewish Literary Voices: A Federation Series in collaboration with the Jewish Book Council

Join in discussion with David Sipress, iconic New Yorker cartoonist who writes about his hapless place in his Upper West Side Jewish family in the age of Sputnik and JFK.  Throughout, cartoons appear in the narrative with spot-on-precision, adding humor and insight to evocative profiles of his family and musings on creativity and art.  This poignant, compelling story is also a meditation on creativity and the art of cartooning, and the delightful Aha moments in answer to the perennial question aimed at cartoonists: Where do you get your ideas?

Purchase the book here and a portion of the proceeds will be donated back to the local Bookstore in Great Barrington.
