Author Dan Grunfeld to speak in Livingston
Dan Grunfeld, an author and former professional basketball player, will speak at Temple Beth Shalom in Livingston on Wednesday, May 3, at 5:30 and again at 7:30 p.m. He will discuss and sign copies of his book, “By the Grace of the Game,” about his family’s history, from his grandparents surviving the Holocaust and making a new life in America, to the impact of the game of basketball on his and his family’s lives.
