Jewish Arts Week March 5-12






This family is uncommonly close: Michael’s childless Auntie Hankie and Uncle Irving, glamorous Hollywood screenwriters, are doubly related ― Hankie is his father’s sister, and Irving is his mother’s brother. In this strangely intertwined world, even the author’s grandmothers ― who dislike each other ― share a nearby apartment. In its portrayal of this fascinating, singularly polarizing figure, the boy in her thrall, and the man that boy becomes, The Mighty Franks will speak to any reader who has ever struggled to find an independent voice amid the turbulence of family life.

Michael Franks will be present to discuss his book.
