TWO CENTRAL FLORIDA EVENTS WITH AUTHOR BORIS FISHMAN


Boris Fishman Reading with John King at The Gallery at Avalon Island
JAN. 24, 7 p.m.

The Gallery at Avalon Island | 39 S. Magnolia Ave., Orlando, FL

Boris Fishman will read from his debut novel, A Replacement Life, published in 2014 by Harper's. A Replacement Life tells the story of a failed journalist asked to do the unthinkable: forge Holocaust-restitution claims for old Russian Jews in Brooklyn, New York. A Replacement Life has been positively reviewed by The New York Times, NPR, The Guardian, Newsweek, and many other publications.

John King, the host of the writing podcast 
The Drunken Odyssey with John King, will read seven poems before Boris Fishman. John King's verse has appeared in Gargoyle and Palooka. He earned his MFA from New York University in 2010.

Free and open to the public!
