Page turners: The congregation’s book club will meet via Zoom on Monday, Jan. 18 at 7 p.m. to discuss “The Takeaway Men: A Novel” by Meryl Ain. With the cloud of the Holocaust still looming over them, twin sisters Bronka and Johanna Lubinski and their parents arrive in the U.S. from a Displaced Persons Camp. As the girls get older, they start to wonder about their parents’ pasts, and they begin to demand answers. But it soon becomes clear that those memories will be more difficult and painful to uncover than they could have anticipated.
You do not have to be a member of Congregation Beth Shalom to join in on the discussion. Call the temple administrator at (813) 681-6547 for the Zoom link.
