Author Leslie K. Barry will join us to discuss her new novel, Newark Minutemen, an untold story about a Jewish boxer who goes undercover for the mob and FBI to save America from Nazis during the Great Depression. The novel is based on the real-life experiences of Barry’s uncle, a Newark Minuteman boxer, and was pieced together from first-hand accounts, FBI reports, and boxes of undercover source material.
During the program we’ll hold a drawing for our virtual audience to win a copy of the book!
