GENRE: NARRATIVE NON-FICTION

Daniel Levin was at his office in New York when he got a call from an acquaintance with an urgent, cryptic request to meet in Paris. A young man had gone missing in Syria. No government, embassy, or intelligence agency would help. Could he? Would he? This begins the suspenseful, shocking, and at times brutal true-life story, PROOF OF LIFE: Twenty Days on the Hunt for a Missing Person in the Middle East (Publication Date: May 18, 2021; $26.95), that finds Levin, a lawyer turned armed-conflict negotiator, navigating the seedy and dangerous underbelly of the Middle East, where he encounters powerful sheiks, drug lords, and sex traffickers in pursuit of the truth.

JAKE COHEN, "Jew-ish: A Cookbook: Reinvented Recipes from a Modern Mensch"

LIVE Cooking Demo and Q & A

New York Times bestseller!

A brilliantly modern take on Jewish culinary traditions for a new generation of readers, from a bright new star in the culinary world. Join us as Jake demonstrates how to make his famous "Everything Bagel Galette" - just in time for the High Holidays!

When you think of Jewish food, a few classics come to mind: chicken soup with matzo balls, challah, maybe a babka if you’re feeling adventurous. But as food writer and nice Jewish boy Jake Cohen demonstrates in this stunning debut cookbook, Jewish food can be so much more.  

In Jew-ish, he reinvents the food of his Ashkenazi heritage and draws inspiration from his husband’s Persian-Iraqi traditions to offer recipes that are modern, fresh, and enticing for a whole new generation of readers. Imagine the components of an everything bagel wrapped into a flaky galette latkes dyed vibrant yellow with saffron for a Persian spin on the potato pancake, best-ever hybrid desserts like Macaroon Brownies and Pumpkin Spice Babka! Jew-ish features elevated, yet approachable classics along with innovative creations, such as: 

  • Jake’s Perfect Challah 
  • Roasted Tomato Brisket 
  • Short Rib Cholent 
  • Iraqi Beet Kubbeh Soup 
  • Sabich Bagel Sandwiches, and
  • Matzo Tiramisu.

An inspiring and intimate self-portrait of the champion of equality that encompasses her brilliant tennis career, unwavering activism, and an ongoing commitment to fairness and social justice.

In this spirited account, Billie Jean King details her life's journey to find her true self. She recounts her groundbreaking tennis career—six years as the top-ranked woman in the world, twenty Wimbledon championships, thirty-nine grand-slam titles, and her watershed defeat of Bobby Riggs in the famous "Battle of the Sexes." She poignantly recalls the cultural backdrop of those years and the profound impact on her worldview from the women's movement, the assassinations and anti-war protests of the 1960s, the civil rights movement, and, eventually, the LGBTQ+ rights movement.

All books include shipping to the US and Canada only. Books will be shipped after the event and can take 7 - 10 business days to receive due to Covid-related USPS delays!
