Book Beat- Button Man
October 2, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Button Man by Andrew Gross – Set between 1905 and 1935, this rags-to-riches tale like Dickens’s Great Expectations merged with The Godfather. Button Man traces the rise of a Jewish immigrant family at the dawn of the women’s garment business – including its collapse under the hammer of organized crime. It drawn in real-life crime figures, brother pitted against brother – and yet, like the story of so many of that generation who brought themselves up from nothing, is inspirational.
