Introducing The Whole Megillah Book Club

A New Year, A New Mission to Create a Community of Jewish Book Readers

Now that 2018 is here, I’m happy to announce the formation of The Whole Megillah Book Club. Membership is free. Every two months, I’ll announce the name of a book we’ll read. This could be fiction or nonfiction, adult or young reader–but always a book of Jewish content. I’ll be glad to consider your requests as well. I’d like to start with the YA Sydney Taylor Book Award winner, Antonio Iturbe’s The Librarian of Auschwitz.

We’ll meet on Facebook on The Whole Megillah community page to discuss. If you’re interested, please comment below or send me an email at barbarakrasner(at)att(dot)net.

    Wow! Not only is this a wonderful way to begin the new year, but by a stroke of serendipity, I just started reading The Librarian of Auschwitz after seeing it on a table display at Barnes and Noble. Please, count me in!

    I would love to join you in this book reading venture.

  14. Sandra Didner says:

    I would love to be a part of your group. Would you consider reading my novel The Conspiracies of Dreams which is about the 1956 Sinai War between Israel and Egypt? It is essentially a love story and is 90% true. I can send you the Kirkus Review of my novel if you are interested.

  15. We will meet on Sunday, February 18, at 2 pm EST, on The Whole Megillah community page on Facebook. The link is in the original post.
