A Temple Sinai Program — Temple Sinai Reads — Night in Shanghai by Nicole Mones
Start our 2016/17 season with Night in Shanghai, based on a true story. In 1936, classical pianist Thomas Greene is recruited to Shanghai to lead a jazz orchestra of fellow African-American expats. In this impressively researched novel, Nicole Mones not only tells the forgotten story of black musicians in the Chinese Jazz age, but also weaves in a stunning true tale of Holocaust heroism little-known in the West. Time: 7:30 p.m. For more information, please call the Temple Office at 416-487-4161 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. 210 Wilson Avenue.
