SILVER SPRING (MD) ––– Kemp Mill Synagogue hosted a literary reading and book sale on Jan 14. The event featured books by five authors from the Kemp Mill community: Dr. Michael Auslin, Dr. Elliot Cohen, Leah Cypess, Michael Eisenstadt, and Dr. Tevi Troy.
The books covered a variety of genres and topics, from the US military to a fantasy world, and the audience was able to ask questions of the authors and buy signed copies of their books. DC retailer Politics and Prose handled the night’s sales.
Speaking first, Troy discussed his latest book, Shall We Wake the President? The book explores how disasters have shaped (or reshaped) presidencies and what can be done to prepare them.
