We all agreed that our February choice, “Panther in the Basement” was a top notch book, rich in language and the history of pre-State Israel under the British Mandate.
Our next meeting will be on Monday, March 18 at 7:30 pm to discuss “The Immortalists ” by Chloe Benjamin. The story begins on the Lower East Side in 1969 when a mysterious woman promises she can predict the day of death for her clients. Four adolescents in the Gold family sneak away to have their futures predicted. The novel probes the link between reality and illusion, destiny and choice, this world and the next, according to the critics.This book was a best seller and Book of the Year on NPR.
I hope to see you next month.
The book is also available at the public library or from other booksellers.
