CL Book Club Returns in September

The Book Club Meets Monday, Sept. 9, 2019, at 7:00pm, in the CLCW Room to discuss We Were the Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter, an American who was 15 when she learned she was from a family of Holocaust survivors. Thus began her quest to uncover her family’s incredible history. This thoroughly researched novel is based on her large, extended Jewish family’s true story. Separated at the start of WWII, they’d all miraculously survived a war that annihilated all but about 300 of the 30,000 Jews from Radom, Poland. They were part of this 1% who survived! This is a story of hope and love that triumphs against all odds. It is about their determination to survive, each trying to navigate his or her own path to safety; and to reunite after being flung to the far corners of the world. It is about how, in the darkest moments, the human spirit can endure, even thrive. While this is a story of survival, death is all around. Resourcefulness and luck contributed to this family’s survival. The discussion will be led by Friedl Bell. Come join us! And looking ahead: Book Club will meet on Monday, October 14, 2019, at 7:00pm in the CLCW Room to discuss Becoming by Michelle Obama. The discussion will be led by Arlene Dietz
