October 27, 2020 Book Discussion:

On the last Tuesday of every month, we meet to discuss a book with a Jewish theme, or a book without an explicitly Jewish theme, and we try to bring a Jewish sensibility to it! All book-lovers are welcome to come, bring lunch, and join the conversation. The book for this month’s discussion will be:

Girl, Woman, Other
by Bernadine Evaristo

Girl, Woman, Other follows the lives and struggles of twelve very different characters. Mostly women, black and British, they tell the stories of their families, friends and lovers, across the country and through the years. Joyfully polyphonic and vibrantly contemporary, this is a gloriously new kind of history, a novel of our times: celebratory, ever-dynamic and utterly irresistible.
