This is kind of last minute, but it sounds like it would be fun.
If you're going to be near, on or around Staten Island on Sunday morning, December 2 and 10 o'clock, Writer/Storyteller/Comics Historian Danny Fingeroth will be speaking on "Jews and the Comic Books" and the creation of the comic book super-hero based on the Jewish immigrant experience. Plus, the talk comes with a lox and bagels breakfast.
Admission is just $7, and Fingeroth will be speaking at Temple Emanu-El at 984 Post Ave. For information, call 718-442-5966.
Fingeroth is a great speaker, a knowledgeable historian and a good guy. If you can make it, you'll have a good time.
