Focusing on the Jewish experience in America from a literary perspective, we read both contemporary novels and classic 20th century fiction by famous and new authors.

We will look at all ages, from Holocaust survivors to coming-of-age tales, alternating between female and male authors.

Everyone is welcome—you don't have to be Jewish to love Jewish novels!
