The Boston Girl
By Anita Diamant

About The Boston Girl

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Red Tent and Day After Night, comes an unforgettable novel about family ties and values, friendship and feminism told through the eyes of a young Jewish woman growing up in Boston in the early twentieth century. Addie Baum is The Boston Girl, born in 1900 to immigrant parents who were unprepared for and suspicious of America and its effect on their three daughters.

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!
