You loved his No. 1 New York Times best-selling bedtime book for parents, “Go the F**k to Sleep.” And he probably kept you up way past your bedtime with the award-winning screenplay he wrote for Netflix’s “Barry.”

Now join Adam Mansbach as he introduces his new book, “The Golem of Brooklyn” (coming to bookstores September 2023). In Ashkenazi Jewish folklore, a golem is a humanoid created out of mud and animated through secret prayers. Its sole purpose is to defend the Jewish people against an immediate threat of violence. “The Golem of Brooklyn” is an epic romp through Jewish history and the American present that wrestles with the deepest questions of our humanity—the conflicts between faith and skepticism, tribalism and interdependence, and vengeance and healing.

Booksales of “The Golem of Brooklyn” available onsite and through Trident Booksellers.

Mansbach is an award-winning novelist, screenwriter and cultural critic whose work often weaves together insightful, irreverent and downright hilarious spins on American Jewish culture. Join us for an unforgettable night.
