The Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County will host a Zoom presentation by author Thelma Adams on Sunday, April 18, at 4 p.m.

Adams is a prominent film critic and outspoken voice in the Hollywood community. The focus of her Zoom presentation is “Bittersweet Brooklyn,” her second female-driven historical novel about the Jewish experience. The book is an immigrant family saga set against the birth of the Jewish mob in Brooklyn at turn of the 20th century. It was the women who suffered the shattering impact of mob violence and were then expected to mop up the mess.

The event is part of the Jewish Federation Book Council’s monthly Zoom presentations of Jewish authors.
