Presented by the Konikoff Center for Learning, in partnership with United Jewish Federation of Tidewater & Simon Family JCC's Lee and Bernard Jaffe Family Jewish Book Festival.

Adam was in the middle of his own busy life, an approaching a career high when the words from his father, “David has taken his own life” opened a chasm beneath his feet. In the shadow of David’s inexplicable death, Adam is forced to reckon with the ghost of a brother he thought he knew, confront his unsettled family history and distant relationship with tradition and faith, and reconcile with the desperate need to understand an event that always escapes his grasp.
