About The Golem and the Jinni
An immigrant tale that combines elements of Jewish and Arab folk mythology, this inventive historical novel describes two supernatural creatures who arrive separately in New York in 1899. They work to create places for themselves in this new world until they meet, becoming friends and soul mates.
About the Jewish American Fiction Book Club
This book club focuses on the Jewish experience in America from a literary perspective – with occasional live Skype appearances by the authors! 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!
