(VIRTUAL) Book Talk + Q&A with author Dan Grunfeld

Dan Grunfeld, Author of By the Grace of the Game: The Holocaust, a Basketball Legacy, and an Unprecedented American Dream. 

From the grips of the Nazis to the top of the Olympic podium, from the cheap seats to center stage at Madison Square Garden, from yellow stars to silver spoons, this complex tale traverses the spectrum of the human experience to detail how perseverance, love, and legacy can survive through generations, carried on the shoulders of a simple and beautiful game.
By the Grace of the Game is a multi-generational family epic detailing history’s only known journey from Auschwitz to the NBA.

Free to join the Zoom, registration required. Option to purchase book will be made available to guests.
