Sid Jacobson JCC To Host Author Mark Sullivan

Sid Jacobson JCC’s Irene & Ronald Cohen Spotlight Speaker Series will host Mark Sullivan, #1 New York Times bestselling author and the writer of Beneath A Scarlet Sky, on Tuesday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m. in the Rubenstein Auditorium located at SJJCC.

“We are thrilled to be hosting an accomplished author like Mark Sullivan,” said Elyse Ingber, director of visual and performing arts, Sid Jacobson JCC. “The story he tells in Beneath A Scarlet Sky is a truly courageous and touching one that many of our members feel a direct connection with.”

Based on the true story of a forgotten hero, Beneath a Scarlet Sky is a riveting tale of one man’s incredible courage and resilience during one of history’s darkest hours. Novelist James Patterson hailed it as, “An incredible story, beautifully written, and a fine and noble book,” and in 2018, it was announced that Pascal Pictures acquired the rights to turn the novel into a TV mini-series.

“This event is an opportunity to hear directly from the author about his experience of writing, the research that went into it, and the reviews and reactions received from readers,” explained Ingber.

Sullivan is the acclaimed author of 18 novels, five of which are part of the New York Times bestselling Private series, cowritten with James Patterson. He has received numerous awards for his writing, including the WHSmith Fresh Talent Award. Sullivan’s works have been named a New York Times Notable Book and a Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year.
