PALM DESERT, Calif., Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Best-selling, award-winning author Harold Gershowitz's "The Eden Legacy," is a love story rich in historical detail, that takes off on the eve of the Israeli-Arab six-day war in 1967. Gershowitz will be discussing the novel at the Rancho Mirage Writers Festival in Rancho Mirage, Calif., on January 28 at The Rancho Mirage Public Library. The festival is a world-class gathering of writers, thinkers, and people contributing to the intellectual vitality of our time, which will be covered nationally by C-SPAN.
The novel unfolds in America and in the Middle East, weaving a wide range of historical detail into a drama-packed story, in which Noah Greenspan, a successful Jewish-American businessman, and his fiancée Alexandra Salaman, a Christian Arab-American journalist must negotiate their love for one another as the Arab-Israeli Six-Day War erupts.
Gershowitz interviewed Israelis and Palestinians in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Jaffa, and the West Bank, to determine, first-hand, how geo-political decisions impact the lives of everyday men and women. The story is packed with personal and political tension, and a terrorist plot that keeps the reader turning pages.
Harold Gershowitz is a retired businessman, lecturer, former adjunct college instructor, and award-winning author of "Remember This Dream," published by Bantam Dell Doubleday, a Chicago Tribune best-seller, and winner of the 1989 "Friends of Literature Award for Fiction". He also wrote "Heirs of Eden," the preceding novel to "The Eden Legacy." A prolific essayist, Mr. Gershowitz is the recipient of an Honorary Doctorate Degree in Humane Letters from the Catholic Theological Union of North America and of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Anti-Defamation League. Mr. Gershowitz has served on many public interest and community Boards and most notably was appointed by President George H. W. Bush and William Jefferson Clinton to the governing council of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.
