In between World Wars, during the Great Depression, American democracy was threatened by a shadow Nazi party, complete with a self-proclaimed American Hitler and a 1939 Nuremberg-like rally in New York's Madison Square Garden. Join Marin author Leslie K. Barry for a discussion of her family's incredible true story—and the inspiration for her new novel, Newark Minutemen—that of a Jewish boxer in 1930s New Jersey who was recruited by the Jewish mob and the FBI to go undercover against the rising German-American Nazi party, falling in love with the enemy's daughter along the way.
