Thursday, June 13, 2019 10 Sivan 5779

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Our book club will be held on Thursday, June 13 as we discuss, The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck.

An RSVP to Dale Hopkins is requested before June 10. Location will be given at time of reservation (location pending).

Set at the end of World War II, in a crumbling Bavarian castle that once played host to all of German high society, a powerful and propulsive story of three widows whose lives and fates become intertwined - an affecting, shocking, and ultimately redemptive novel from the author of the New York Times Notable Book The Hazards of Good Breeding. Jessica Shattuck's evocative and utterly enthralling novel offers a fresh perspective on one of the most tumultuous periods in history. Combining piercing social insight and vivid historical atmosphere, The Women in the Castle is a dramatic yet nuanced portrait of war and its repercussions that explores what it means to survive, love, and, ultimately, to forgive in the wake of unimaginable hardship."
