Book Club


The Jewish Center's Book Club reads and discusses books of  Jewish interest.

The group meets usually on the third Tuesday of the month.   Relax with a good book -- and then join us for a lively and engaging discussion.  Anyone is welcome to participate, whether you enjoyed the book or not  even if you haven't finished it.

Multiple copies of our selections are usually available at the Princeton Public Library on the "Book Club" table. Or you can purchase the book from Amazon. Every time you go to Amazon from our website, The Jewish Center earns up to 15% of each sale.

Upcoming Selections

Greetings, Readers!
Whether your summer escape finds you at the beach or the mountains or a movie theater or the local library, I hope everyone is finding time to relax and re-energize.
 
TJC Book Club will meet, as usual, on the third Tuesday, August 21, at 7:30pm in the TJC Beit Midrash.  Ironically, our summer beach selection is the one we originally planned to discuss at our snowed-out March meeting:
 
Paula Marantz Cohen's "Jane Austen in Scarsdale"

 
which borrows the social satire and plot of Jane Austen's "Persuasion" and resets it to the world around a modern day high school college guidance counselor.
 
For future planning, save these dates and read these books: 
    We will not meet in September due to the holidays.

  • October 16 -- Faye Kellerman's "Bone Box"
  • November 20 -- Tova Mirvis' "The Book of Separation"
  • Multiple copies of our selections are available at the Princeton Public Library on the "Book Club" shelves. (NOTE: The fiction Book Club shelves are on the first floor, but the non-fiction Book Club shelves are upstairs on the second floor.)
