Adam Mansbach presents 
The Golem of Brooklyn
In conversation with Dan Charnas

Adam Mansbach, bestselling author of Go the Fuck to Sleep and A Field Guide to Jewish People among other works, returns to Greenlight (in person this time!) to share his newest book, The Golem of Brooklyn. In Ashkenazi Jewish folklore, a golem is a humanoid being created out of mud or clay and animated through secret prayers. Its sole purpose is to defend the Jewish people against the immediate threat of violence. It is always a rabbi who makes a golem, and always in a time of crisis. But Len Bronstein is no rabbi--he's a Brooklyn art teacher who steals a large quantity of clay from his school, gets extremely stoned, and manages to bring his creation to life despite knowing little about Judaism and even less about golems. Dan Charnas, author of Dilla Time says "The Golem of Brooklynis easily the funniest novel I've ever read, and yet achieves an uncanny profundity." Charnas joins Mansbach on the Greenlight stage for a rollicking evening you won't want to miss.
