About the Event
Fred Sokol's new novel, Destiny, is about aging and reimagining life.
In this story Morris Kahn and Mendel Greenbaum have been friends for more years than either cares to remember. United by shuffleboard, a house they share with the women they love, and an abiding affection masked by constant bickering, they embark on a spur-of-the-moment road trip triggered by a yearning to see the ocean.
When they arrive at the beach, their openness to chance encounters leads them to Destiny—a woman, a place, and an opportunity to reimagine the rest of their lives.
Join Fred to talk about the book and what inspires him as he continues to write a new novel as well as work as a reviewer of professional theatre for talkinbroadway.com . In semi-retirement, Fred has taken his years of theater production experience to his teaching of a small acting class at his local library. Fred has reimagined his life in a wonderful way and his talk is sure to inspire you to do the same.
