Star Child (Vineyard, $16.95) by Kay Goldstein, written in a fairy tale genre similar to The Little Prince and The Alchemist is a book for young and mature adults. It explores in a simple and poetic way the challenges facing two "star children,"Terra and Marius, on their journey to learn about being human. Set in a faraway time and place, they confront the same problems of modern humans: fear, loneliness, the need to please, and the stigma of showing their true selves when they do not fit in with those around them. Betraying their own hearts, each gives up or misuses the very things, the special powers that make them unique.
Henry Ford is remembered in American lore as the ultimate entrepreneur—the man who invented assembly-line manufacturing and made automobiles affordable. Largely forgotten is his side career as a publisher of antisemitic propaganda. Henry Ford's War on Jews and the Legal Battle Against Hate Speech (Stanford U. Press, $63.25) by Victoria Saker Woeste is the story of Ford's ownership of the Dearborn Independent, his involvement in the defamatory articles it ran, and the two Jewish lawyers, Aaron Sapiro and Louis Marshall, who each tried to stop Ford's war. Using never-before-discovered evidence from archives and private family collections, this study reveals the depth of Ford's involvement in every aspect of this case and explains why Jewish civil rights lawyers and religious leaders were deeply divided over how to handle Ford. Join us for a multi-media presentation featuring rare images of the events and players in Sapiro v. Ford with a Q&A and discussion with the author. This event is presented in collaboration with The Fellows of the American Bar Association, the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, and Temple Judea. 7:30pm
