The Book Club meets monthly for informal discussion in the library. Join fellow readers for lively and thought-provoking conversation about excellent books. This month: “The Dovekeepers” by Alice Hoffman. In 70 CE, nine hundred Jews held out for months against armies of Romans on a mountain in the Judean, desert, Masada. Only two women and five children survived. Based on this tragic and iconic event, Hoffman weaves a spellbinding tale of four extraordinary bold, resourceful, and sensuous women, each of whom comes to Masada by a different path.Copies of all readings available a month in advance at the circulation desk.
