Author talk with Jeff Wallach – virtual program
August 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Speaker: Jeff Wallach
“Mr. Wizard”, Jeff Wallach’s debut novel, follows Phillip and Spencer Elliot, two Jewish brothers on Long Island who learn via DNA testing that their supposed father is not who they thought. The brothers pursue a genetic treasure hunt by following clues that may or may not have been left by their mother, Jenny.
While searching to learn more about their identities the brothers consider who they are and what that means: are they pure products of genetics; formed more completely by upbringing and social interactions; victims of randomness; or some combination of these factors? The action takes place in 1970s Long Island, and current-day Manhattan, Westchester, and Ireland.
