Join us at the Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience or virtually on January 27th from 6:00-7:30pm for a conversation and book signing with author and nationally-recognized sports journalist Ivan Maisel as he discusses his emotional memoir, I Keep Trying to Catch His Eye.
Ivan Maisel, the son of first generation Jewish immigrants from Mobile, Alabama, writes about the complicated relationship and transformative reality of the suicide of his son Max in February 2015, and the healing that continues after.
I Keep Trying to Catch His Eye is a stunning, poignant exploration of the father and son
relationship, of how our tendency to overlook men’s mental health can have devastating
consequences, and how ultimately letting those who grieve do so openly and freely can lead
to greater healing.
Jewish Family Service will be on site to share information about suicide prevention and family counseling.
