Gilman, who is a New York Times bestselling author of three nonfiction books, will discuss her debut novel, The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street. It is a compelling immigrant story that follows Lillian Dunkle, a millionaire ice cream maker who with her Jewish family immigrated to the Lower East Side as a child and toiled for every penny she earned. It is an entertaining, charming, and wickedly funny book.
The program is being cosponsored by the Sid Jacobson JCC Edward and Bernice Wenger Center for the Arts and the Jewish Book Council.
The lecture is open to the entire community. Admission is $10 and ice cream will be served. Gilman’s new book may be purchased through Temple Judea for $25. Make checks payable to Sisterhood of WRJ.
