People of the Book: American Jewish Authors Book Group
People of the Book – American Jewish Authors Book Club
Free, Monthly Tuesday evening meetings at the Temple, 7:00 – 9:00pm Oct 17; Nov 14; Dec 19; Jan 16; Feb 20; Mar 27; Apr 24 and May 15
What better time to start a book group than the start of the new Jewish Year?
Our focus will be on the fiction—novels and short stories—of selected Jewish American writers of the 20th and 21st centuries as they explore the tension between assimilation and tradition and the poles of alienation and belonging. Every work will also be rich in character, story, and the exploration of the human condition—the stuff that makes for great and enjoyable fiction. Be prepared for familiar and less well known works, humor and sadness, seriousness and whimsy, and all the passions of life.
