Adult Education - Reader's Circle - Monthly Jewish Themed Book Club

The Reader's Circle Book Club continues to meet with a solid core of committed participants who have enthusiasm for sharing wonderful books, many with Jewish themes. We are pleased that in the past seven years, we have grown from a handful of people to a formidable membership. 

We hope you will find the time to read with us -- you will be glad you did! We meet on the first Thursday of each month at 7:30PM in Room 8 of the Andrew Friedland Preschool. For more information, please contact Diane Gess.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Due to the Passover holidays, there will be no meeting in April!

Please join us for our May 4th meeting when we will review when Susan Yacavone will be our reviewer for the book Saving Sophie by Ronald Balson.

About Saving Sophie:
Jack Sommers was just an ordinary accountant from Chicago. That is, until his wife passed away, his young daughter was kidnapped, and he became the main suspect in an $88 million dollar embezzlement case. Now, Jack is on the run, hoping to avoid the feds long enough to rescue his daughter, Sophie, from her maternal grandfather, a suspected terrorist in Palestine.


For our March 2 meeting, Diane Bedrin reviewed On Herring Cove Road: Mr. Jew and the Goy Boy, by Michael Croft.

Despite the paucity of information regarding the author and the genesis of his writings, Diane Bedrin did a masterful job in eliciting a range of comments and a great deal of conversation about the characters and the plot. Thank you Diane.  Thank you to Mariette Bronstein who was our host.
