“PJ Landers brings his new story Searching for Pop to Edinburgh for the first time. It’s the story of a young man’s quest to find the father he never knew, met or even saw a picture of. After having a child of his own he had an overwhelming yearning to find this man. From the streets of Queens, NY to a movie set in Yonkers, NY then on an emotional cross-country journey that changes his life forever. Its about sacrifice, redemption, forgiveness and above all love. A heartfelt, funny and engaging dramatic memoir.”
