Monday, September 24th, 2018 - The September meeting of CHATTINGERS, the Challengers Book Club, is for ALL THE ANSWERS by Michael Kupperman, published by Gallery 13.
"Joel Kupperman became one of the most famous children in America during World War II as one of the young geniuses on the series Quiz Kids. With the uncanny ability to perform complex math problems in his head, Joel endeared himself to audiences across the country and became a national obsession. Following a childhood spent in the public eye, only to then fall victim to the same public's derision, Joel deliberately spent the remainder of his life removed from the world at large. With wit and heart, Michael Kupperman presents a fascinating account of mid-century radio and early television history, the pro-Jewish propaganda entertainment used to counteract anti-Semitism, and the early age of modern celebrity culture."
Through September 23rd, we're offering ALL THE ANSWERS at 20% off! Then, on September 24th at 7pm, come back to hang out and chat with other fans about it! Snacks and cheap beer will be served.
