Temple Israel Book Club Events
Books are reviewed and lively discussions take place during Monday meetings. We read everything from novels, biographies, memoirs, and non-fiction. Everyone is welcome -- please join us for a special experience. Although this is a Sisterhood event, men are welcome and encouraged to attend. We are now meeting via Zoom until such time as we can all get together again.
Our book for October 5th is "You Never Forget Your First: A Biography of George Washington" by Alexis Coe.
She takes a closer look at our first and finds he is not quite the man we remember. Alexis Coe debunks some myths and looks at the man from a woman author's perspective.
Our book for November 2 is "Anything is Possible" by Elizabeth Strout.
This is a novel of related stories set in a fictional rural town.
“Readers who loved My Name Is Lucy Barton . . . are in for a real treat. . . . Strout is a master of the story cycle form. . . . She paints cumulative portraits of the heartache and soul of small-town America by giving each of her characters a turn under her sympathetic spotlight.”—NPR
