Lucinda Franks Book Talk


Lucinda_05615AOn Thursday, May 14, at 7:30 p.m., Temple Sinai of Roslyn will host a book talk by Lucinda Franks, author of the critically-acclaimed book, Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me. The talk is being held in cooperation with the Sid Jacobson JCC and the Jewish Book Council.

In this evocative memoir, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Lucinda Franks tells the intimate story of her 35-year marriage to New York’s powerful District Attorney Robert Morgenthau, one of America’s most prominent Jews and the son of President Franklin Roosevelt’s treasury secretary and a man who was twice Franks’s age.

Franks will discuss her personal story which reads like a novel. An unlikely couple, they fell in love, and have shared a passion for Jewish culture and a determination to build New York’s first Holocaust museum. Franks recounts how she wrote stories for The New York Times about visits to Israel, and how Morgenthau worked with the Mossad to catch worldwide terrorists and the white collar criminals who funded them.

The evening will feature a discussion and book signing. Books
are available for purchase in the Temple office. The entire community is welcome and there is no charge
to attend.

Temple Sinai of Roslyn is located at 425 Roslyn Rd. For more information, contact Ethel Liebeskind at 516-621-6800 or visit
