TJC 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.

Greetings Readers!

I hope everyone is having a re-energizing summer.
Thank you to Dee for hosting our summer pot-luck and video.
And thank you to Louise for enthusiastically piloting this book club since its inception, more than 150 books ago.
Also, thank you to new member, Tovah Reis, for sharing this link to an article about the less than scholarly history of book clubs:

On Tuesday evening, August 15, we will meet as usual at 7:30pm in the TJC Beit Midrash to discuss
 
 Cathleen Schine's "They May Not Mean To But They Do"
 
Advertised oxymoronically as "a hilarious new novel about aging, family, loneliness, and love" it seems like a novel that contains situations to which we can all relate - even if we may not want to admit it.
 
For future planning, save these dates and read these books:
 
  • September 26 -- Helene Wecker's  "The Golem and the Jinni"
  • October 17 --  Lauren Belfer’s  "After the Fire: A Novel"
  • November 21 -- Shulem Deen's  "All Who Go Do Not Return"
  • December 19 -- Michael Chabon's "Moonglow"
