Please come join us on Saturday, July 13, 2019, at 10:00 a.m. to discuss our next book, “People of the Book” by Geraldine Brooks.  Inspired by a true story, it is a historical novel that follows a rare Hebrew manuscript, the famed Sarajevo Haggadah, through centuries of exile and war.  The Sarajevo Haggadah is a beautifully illustrated version of the Haggadah, a traditional text which is read during the Passover Seder.  This story tells of the multitude of people who risked their lives in the safeguarding of the manuscript during the Inquisition, the exile of the Jews from Spain, and other historical events including Hitler and the Holocaust.   For more info contact Kat Wallace at 949-300-0847 or katwallace13@gmail.com.
