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.

The Family Tabor March Book Club.jpg

Our next meeting will be held on March 7 when Joan Krieger will review The Family Tabor by Cherise Wolas.

About this Book:

Harry Tabor is about to be named Man of the Decade, a distinction that feels like the culmination of a life well lived. Gathering together in Palm Springs for the celebration are his wife, Roma, a distinguished child psychologist, and their children: Phoebe, a high-powered attorney; Camille, a brilliant social anthropologist; and Simon, a big-firm lawyer, who brings his glamorous wife and two young daughters. But immediately, cracks begin to appear in this smooth facade: 

Set over the course of a single weekend, and deftly alternating between the five Tabors, this provocative, gorgeously rendered novel, reckons with the nature of the stories we tell ourselves and our family and the price we pay for second chances.

Notorious RBG Feb Book Club.jpg

At our February 7th meeting, we had an RBG support evening. Sharon Glassman, regaled in an RBG T-Shirt, led a vibrant discussion about our Supreme Court Judge who has inspired millions of millenniums and has created a following never before seen for a Supreme Court Justice. Using a large screen, Sharon shared pictures and documents to support her report on The Notorious RBG by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik. Great job Sharon!
