Erica Perl

Join JBookFest, Shalom Austin's literary series full of gripping presentations and captivating conversations with authors from around the world, Jan. 13, to hear Erica Perl discuss her coming-of-age novel, “All Three Stooges.”

Spoiler alert: This book is not about the Three Stooges. It's about Noah and Dash, two seventh-graders who are best friends and comedy junkies. That is, they were best friends until Dash’s father died suddenly and Dash shut Noah out. Now Noah’s confusion, frustration and determination to get through to Dash are threatening to destroy more than just their friendship. But what choices does he have? As Noah sees it, sometimes you need to risk losing everything, even your sense of humor, to prove that gone doesn’t have to mean “gone for good.” ■

The event will be held Jan. 13 at 1:30 p.m. at JCC Community Hall, 7300 Hart Lane. Register to attend at shalomaustin.org/JBookFest
