TEANECK, N.J. – Eunice Lipton, historian and author of “A Distant Heartbeat: A War, a Disappearance, and a Family’s Secrets” will speak on Friday at 7 p.m. at the Puffin Cultural Forum in Teaneck.

“A Distant Heartbeat,” her latest book, tells the story of her uncle who, as a young man in the Bronx in 1938, informs his parents that he is leaving for the Catskills to begin his new job as a waiter. Instead, he sails for Europe to join the Abraham Lincoln Brigade in the Spanish Civil War, the opening round in the fight against Hitler and Mussolini. 

Decades later, Lipton stumbles upon clues of her uncle’s story, uncovering details of his exhilarating political life in New York, his shuttered romantic life and his deep friendship with another volunteer. 

“A Distant Heartbeat” tells a tale of passion and heroism, centered on a fierce competition between brothers, a packet of missing letters and the unforeseen results of family betrayal.

Books will be available for purchase and signing. A donation of $10 is suggested. Reservations recommended. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and reservations will be held until 6:45 p.m. Reserve seats via email or call 201-836-3499.
