AUTHOR EVENT // Andy Weinberger - An Old Man's Game

Join author and fellow bookstore owner Andy Weinberger for a reading from his debut novel An Old Man's Game. This is a free event.

ABOUT AN OLD MAN'S GAME

Retired private eye Amos Parisman is just trying to keep things kosher.

When a controversial celebrity rabbi drops dead over his matzoh ball soup at the famed Canter’s Deli in Los Angeles, retired private eye Amos Parisman—a sixtyish, no-nonsense Jewish de- tective who lives with his addled wife in Park La Brea—is hired by the temple’s board to make sure everything is kosher. As he looks into what seems to be a simple, tragic accident, the ante is raised when more people start to die or disappear, and Amos uncovers a world of treachery and hurt that shakes a large L.A. Jewish community to its core.
