Meet Joseph Wolkin a Jewish writer from Queens

Joseph recently published his second children's book Superfast Indy Car Racing, detailing what life in motorsports is like after spending several years on the motorsports beat.

Writing is Joseph's passion, and he is determined to teach people about all different kinds of topics. His newest book does exactly that, aimed at showing what racing is all about thanks to his years of covering the sport.

Joseph attended Stony Brook University, and is now a newspaper editor on Long Island. He has been published in dozens of publications, and his work has been shared throughout the world. Among his top interviews are Q&A features with The Nanny, Fran Drescher and Jeff Garlin, two of the top Jewish comedians to ever live.

His first book, Grandma: The Story of a Boy and His Grandma, was published when he was just 18 years old. Every time little Joseph visits his grandmother, Doris, he is afraid of the love she offers. Like many children, Joseph does not recognize what having a grandma means. Still, they go everywhere together--she picks him up from school, takes him to the doctor when he is sick, and plays ball with him. Eventually, his Jewish education takes over and the lessons he learns will last a lifetime.
