Beth El Temple Book Club Celebrates Jewish Book Month
With Larry Tye, author of
Superman: The High-Flying History of America’s Most Enduring Hero
Tuesday, November 19 at Beth El Temple
7:00 p.m. Author Larry Tye discusses Superman on the 75th anniversary of this comic phenomenon followed by a Q & A session. Tye is a former award-winning journalist with the Boston Globe and author of Satchel, The Life and Times of an American Legend.
8:30 p.m. Book Signing and Super Desserts: Make Your Own Sundae and Superman Birthday Cake
Even Superman’s most fervent fans may not know this about the Man of Steel: He is Jewish, or at least the inspiration for his creation derives from the yearnings and aspirations of his Jewish creators. Jerry Siegel, story writer, and Joe Shuster, artist, were students at Cleveland’s Glenville High School when they first conceived Superman, imbuing him with the strength and daring they felt their own lives lacked.
Their evolving Superman character took on the role of social activist, righting wrongs and fighting for social justice and against tyranny, be it crooked businessmen and politicians, Hitler, Stalin, or the Ku Klux Klan.
Who would publish this fanciful tale of an iconic hero with superhuman strengths and moral fortitude? Enter Jack Liebowitz of Detective Comics, Inc., a hardheaded but visionary entrepreneur. The ups and downs, struggles and challenges, fortunes and misfortunes in the lives of Siegel and Shuster represent a story we can all relate to in Larry Tye’s Superman: The High Flying History of America’s Most Enduring Hero.
