Mr. Langer will discuss his book Crossing California and everyone is invited to attend this program that is part of the Adult Summer Reading Program.
Set in Chicago’s Jewish neighborhood of West Rogers Park, this is the story of three families–adults and children alike–coming of age during the tumultuous, turbulent days of the Iran hostage crisis. At the close of the 1970s, the Rovners, the Wasserstroms, and the Wills-Silvermans will have to shed their pasts to cross into that new, shining decade of hope: the 80s.
A limited number of copies of Mr. Langer’s work are available at the library for check-out for those interested in attending the program.
For more information, please come in or call the library at 312-747-9673.
