Anti-Bullying Author Elaine Wolf to Speak in June
Award-winning author Elaine Wolf will discuss her powerful novel, Danny’s Mom at a Brunch event on Sunday, June 8 at Congregation Beth Ahm synagogue at 362 Palisado Ave. (Route 159) in Windsor. The 11 a.m. event is part of the Mandell JCC Jewish Book Festival’s “Authors on the Road” program.

Reservations are needed for the $18 event and should be made in advance by calling Marcia Heneson at (860) 688-2283 or emailing congregationbethahm@gmail.com.

Danny’s Mom is a novel about a mother who risks her career and her marriage when she speaks out against bullying and homophobia in the explosive high school where she works as a guidance counselor. It is a powerful novel that will appeal to all readers – especially mothers, to the millions of adults who work in our schools, and to the LGBTQ community.

Elaine Wolf is an award-winning writer, writing workshop facilitator, and former public school teacher and district language arts chairperson. Her novel, Camp, won a first-place Forward National Literature Award and was selected as Book of the Month by the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County (NY), which honored her with its 2013 Community Upstander Award.
