Women’s Book Group Meeting

Details

Date:
June 4, 2018
Time:
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The next meeting of the Women’s Book Group will be held on Monday, June 4, 2018, at 7:30 pm at the home of Kathryn Suárez. Please contact the Parish Office with any questions you may have.

We will be discussing The History of Love by Nicole Krauss.

From The New York Times: “…this time the mode, à la Foer, is sentimental Jewish magic realism. The novel is about three people. The first, Leo Gursky, is an aged Manhattan locksmith who, during his youth in Poland, wrote a novel, The History of Love, inspired by his love for a girl from his village; he lost both the girl and the manuscript. The second, Alma Singer, is a 14-year-old Brooklynite named after every female character in that novel. The third, Zvi Litvinoff, connects them. Unbeknownst to Leo, Litvinoff published The History of Love, translated from its original Yiddish into Spanish, under his own name in Chile during the 1950’s or early 1960’s. Sometime later, traveling through South America, Alma’s father discovered and fell in love with the book.”
