Author Ronald Balson at Max and Benny’s on January 13

Ronald Balson, the author of the novel “Once We Were Brothers,” is the next featured speaker at the Max and Benny’s Chicago Jewish Authors Literary Series on Monday evening, January 13 at 7:00 pm. Max and Benny’s is located at 461 Waukegan Road in Northbrook. This amazing novel’s narrative interweaves between contemporary Chicago and Holocaust-era Poland. It’a a remarkable tale of one man’s courage and perseverance, and the ultimate triumph of good over evil.
