In 1938 a shadow Hitler-Nazi party called the German-American Bund sought to swallow America’s democracy, holding rallies 20,000 strong in Madison Square Garden and recruiting children to attend Nazi summer camps in New York.

But a group of Jewish boxers set about to wake up Depression-era Americans to the Nazis on their doorstep.

The mob and FBI prevented this fascinating story from being told until now. And this timeless tale of the vigilance, intelligence and surveillance necessary to thwart threats against our country turns out to be highly relevant to the times in which we live, said Robin Abrams, former director of Investigative Services for Entertainment Security Company.

The story is also a personal story for Leslie K. Barry, a screenwriter and executive producer whose idea of fun is skiing in Sun Valley. Her uncle was a Newark Minuteman boxer, and she pieced together her new novel “Newark Minuteman” from first-hand accounts, FBI reports and boxes of undercover source material.

Barry will discuss her new novel at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 8, during a free livestream courtesy of The Community Library. And she’ll even give a copy of her book away to some lucky person in the virtual audience.
