Sat
12/3
1-3 PM

In the 1920s and 30s, anti-Semitism was rife in the United States and Europe. Jews needed symbols of strength and demonstrations of courage against their enemies, and they found both in two champions of boxing: Max Baer and Barney Ross. Baer was the only Jewish heavyweight champion in the twentieth century, while Ross was considered one of the greatest welterweight and lightweight champions of the era. Although their careers never crossed paths, their boxing triumphs played a common role in lifting the spirits of persecuted Jews.

Jeffrey Sussman is the author of ten non-fiction books, as well as numerous articles and short stories about boxing. He is a regular writer for the premier boxing website www.boxing.com. Sussman is the president of a public relations and marketing firm based in New York City (www.powerpublicity.com).

Sci Fic Book Discussion, “Coming Home” Jack McDevitt

Garnett Baylee devoted his life to trying, and failing, to find artifacts of the early space age. In the wake of his death, one was discovered in his home, raising tantalizing questions: Had he succeeded after all? Why had he kept it a secret? And where is the rest of the Apollo cache?

Antiquities dealer Alex Benedict and his pilot, Chase Kolpath, have no choice but to abandon the search for Baylee’s artifacts in order to be present when the Capella—the interstellar transport that vanished years earlier in a time/space warp—is expected to reappear. There’s only a window of a few hours to rescue the ship and the twenty-six hundred
passengers aboard—including Alex’s uncle, the man who raised him.
