Jewish Book Month at JCC: “Metropolis” author B.A. Shapiro

November 16, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


“Metropolis” is a mas­ter­ful nov­el of psy­cho­log­i­cal sus­pense from B.A. Shapiro, New York Times best­selling author of “The Art Forg­er.”

It fol­lows a cast of unfor­get­table char­ac­ters whose lives inter­sect when a har­row­ing acci­dent occurs at the Metrop­o­lis Stor­age Ware­house in Cam­bridge.

B.A. Shapiro’s “Metropolis” introduces us to a cast of intriguing characters: Serge is a home­less street pho­tog­ra­ph­er who sleeps in his stor­age unit; Mar­ta is an ille­gal immi­grant who seeks refuge from ICE by hid­ing in hers; Lid­dy camps out in hers after escap­ing her abu­sive hus­band; Jason is a lawyer who uses his unit as his office; Rose is the office man­ag­er who takes kick­backs; and Zach is the build­ing own­er is an ex-drug deal­er.

When a fate­ful acci­dent occurs, these six very dif­fer­ent peo­ple, with seem­ing­ly no link to each oth­er beyond the Metrop­o­lis Stor­age Ware­house in Cam­bridge, Mass­a­chu­setts, see their pre­car­i­ous­ly bal­anced lives torn apart. But was it an acci­dent or some­thing else? Sui­cide, per­haps? Murder?

Includes book signing and light reception.
