St. Louis Jewish Book Festival Presents Stephen Flatow

November 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

$20

This is the story of one brave father’s determination to bring his daughter’s murderers to justice through the American justice system. Stephen M. Flatow says he was “just a real estate lawyer in New Jersey” until April 9, 1995. Flatow’s life changed that day when he learned his daughter Alisa, a twenty-year-old college student traveling in Israel, had been the victim of a terrorist bus-bombing. After he discovered the Iranian government had directly sponsored the bomber, Flatow decided to sue the terror state. It was not to be quixotic, as Flatow, working with a superb Washington lawyer and an astute forensic researcher, not only won a dramatic verdict against Iran, but collected a huge judgment. In A Father’s Story: My Fight for Justice Against Iranian Terror, Stephen M. Flatow recalls the events surrounding his successful lawsuit. A major motion picture based on Flatow’s life is in development with producer Scott LaStaiti and Palantir Group.
