In 1939 Joe Kavalier smuggles himself, Houdini-style, out of Nazi-occupied Prague and reappears in New York to live with his cousin, Sammy Clay. It’s the golden age of comic books and the ambitious pair—the storyteller and the artist—invent the perfect superhero for America on the brink of the Second World War. Chabon’s tale of escape, transformation, magic, and moxie is a modern-day epic—Book-It will present this novel as a theatrical event complete with dinner break.
