Meet the Author – Adam Andrusier

Tuesday, October 12

Steve Levinson will interview Adam Andrusier at 2.30 pm.

Adam Andrusier spent his childhood in pursuit of autographs. After writing to every famous person he could think of, from Frank Sinatra to Colonel Gaddafi, he soon jostled with the paparazzi at stage doors and came face-to-face with the most famous people on the planet.

For young Adam, autographs were a backstage pass to a world beyond his chaotic family home in Pinner, and his Holocaust-obsessed father. They provided a special connection to a world of glamour and significance lying just beyond his reach.

But as Adam turned from collector to dealer, learning how to spot a fake from the real deal, he discovered that in life, as in autographs, not everything is as it first appears. When your obsession is a search for the authentic, what happens when you discover fraudulence in your own family?

Reminiscent of Nick Hornby’s Fever Pitch, with the wit of David Sedaris and the warmth of David Nicholls, Two Hitlers and a Marilyn is as funny as it is moving. It is also about the lost age of things: faxes, letter writing, autographs, Israeli dancing camps, munchkins, Doris Day, and their replacement with our virtual world.

Warsaw Ghetto Museum

Sunday, October 3

Due to circumstances beyond our control, this event has been cancelled. We hope to reschedule it for a future date.

Rabbi David Berman will be talking about the museum which is being developed in the city and is due to open in 2023.

The Warsaw Ghetto Museum is being built in the old Children’s Hospital (pictured here), one of the few buildings surviving from the Warsaw Ghetto. More than 400,000 Jews were crammed into the Ghetto, the vast majority of whom were either murdered in camps like Treblinka or who died of disease or starvation or were killed during the 1943 Uprising. The aim of the Ghetto museum is ‘To disseminate knowledge about the life, struggle and extermination of the Polish Jews in the Warsaw ghetto and other ghettos of the German-occupied Poland.’ Continue reading
