Michael Goldberg presents his book "Zieglitz's Blessing"
Author Michael Goldberg will be at Readers' Books to discuss his book, "Zieglitz's Blessing" on Wednesday, February 15th at 6:00 p.m. Both religiously serious and irreverently humorous, the novel depicts one man's struggle to decide if his Hebrew name—meaning "God will show mercy"—is fitting or merely a cruel joke. In this, his first work of fiction, Michael tackles deep questions about divine justice, love, and above all, what constitutes blessing. Rod Zieglitz can only rightly understand the truth behind his name when, on his deathbed, he grapples with the challenges he's faced.
Michael Goldberg is a nationally-acclaimed writer and speaker.
