As part of our BOOK CLUB SERIES
Join us for an Author Talk with Lisa Goldberg as she discusses her book
The Apple and the Shady Tree
They say that “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” In Lisa Novick Goldberg’s memoir, she explores the veracity of this proverb by examining her complicated relationship with her father, whose closest friends happen to be bosses of the Genovese crime family. Goldberg begins with a mob-related murder that forever alters the way she views the world. Through chronological vignettes, both riveting and humorous, she takes us behind the scenes into the glitzy and corrupt world of organized crime, where chaotic consequences wreak havoc on her fragile family. Goldberg examines the fear, disappointment, and confusion that comes with a lifetime of negotiating identities as a privileged Jewish girl and a sort-of Mafia princess.
Lisa Novick Goldberg was born in Brooklyn and grew up in the Five Towns on Long Island. She received her bachelor’s degree from Vassar College and her master’s degree in international affairs from Columbia School of International and Public Affairs.
