Foundation Board Member Marilyn Ida Horowitz will read from and discuss her new political thriller, The Book of Zev.
BOOK RELEASE PARTY, READING AND SIGNING
Marilyn will discuss her new political thriller The Book of Zev, the various themes in the book, why the book is relevant in today’s world and how she used her own screenwriting system, The Horowitz System® to write her book, allowing her to create an almost perfect first draft.
About the book:
Can a New York City cab driver and a beautiful private chef prevent a fanatical Middle Eastern dignitary from blowing up the United Nations and launching a nuclear attack on Israel in less time than it took God to create the world?
The Book of Zev is a political thriller that tells the story of two gentle souls who share the same psychic and get caught up in a global terrorist plot: Zev Bronfman, a strapping, angry 32-year-old refugee-from-religious- Jewish-life virgin/cabdriver; and Sarah Hirshbaum, a beautiful, redheaded, depressed, God- hating kosher chef/divorcee who seesaws between yoga and too much red wine. When the psychic inadvertently sends a tape recording of Zev’s latest reading to Sarah, a series of harrowing events forces the two of them to band together to stop a powerful terrorist with plans to destroy both the United Nations and Israel.
Award winning NYU screenwriting professor and consultant, Marilyn Ida Horowitz, will talk about the various themes in the book, why the book is relevant in today’s world and how she used her own screenwriting system, The Horowitz System® to write her book, allowing her to write an almost perfect first draft.
