The Kill Clause, Hurwitz's fourth
novel, follows Tim Rackley, a deputy
U.S. marshal devastated by the murder
of his daughter and the legal technicali-
ties that set the killer free.
Rackley, who will be in a new series
of Hurwitz books, weighs teaming up
with a secret group of victims' families,
also feeling betrayed by the justice sys-
tem and seeking their own ways of tak-
ing care of criminals.
Hurwitz, who majored in English
and psychology at Harvard and concen-
trated on Shakespearean tragedy while
earning a master's degree from Trinity
College at Oxford University, became
focused on books while growing up in a
home where television was forbidden.
In his visit to Ann Arbor, he looks
forward to exploring the campus where
his mother, Majorie Messing Hurwitz,
earned her bachelor's degree.
Hurwitz, raised without religious
observance, does create Jewish charac-
ters. In his latest thriller, there is a
Jewish woman trying to find justice she
feels was denied in court.
"I hope my books will generate con-
versation and discussion," Hurwitz
says. "I pick complicated issues for
Pasek also addresses complex issues in
Einstein Never Used Flash Cards, but her
message has to do with allowing chil-
dren less structured time so they can
explore their own creativity.
"There's an enormous gap between
what we know about children and what
we do," says Pasek, 50, who co-wrote
the book with Roberta Michnick
Golinkoff, a longtime writing partner,
and Diane Eyer, another psychology
colleague. "Children need to explore,
and we must let them do that by giving
them back their childhood."
Pasek, a professor at Temple
University in Philadelphia, has been co-
author of nine other books about chil-
dren and is a contributor to 'An Ethical
Start," a program used at the JCC's
Early Childhood Center. In her presen-
tation, she will explain how her
approach makes families feel more com-
fortable and less exhausted.
"We have to rescue our children from
a hurried society," says Pasek, whose son
Benjamin is a freshman in the musical
theater program at the University of
Michigan. "We must remember that
people learn over time, and personal
Pasek explains that time spent in
communication and unstructured play
also is time spent with important learn-
ing activities, often more meaningful
than memorizing information.
"This book tells the story of devel-
opment from the scientist's point of
view," the introduction explains. "It
thus offers an antidote not only to the
hurried child but also to the hurried
parent and hurried teacher." ❑
