July 23rd at 1:00 p.m. - Lunch 'N Books: The Plot Against America by Philip Roth
Join us on July 23 at 1:00 p.m. as we discuss The Plot Against America by Philip Roth. The novel begins in 1940, with the election of Charles Lindbergh, who blamed the Jews for pushing America toward war with Nazi Germany. Lindbergh’s admiration of Hitler and his openly anti Semitic speeches cause increasing turmoil in the Roth household, and in nine-year-old Philip, as political events abroad overtake their lives. History will not let go, and as America is whipped into a deadly frenzy by demagogues, the Roths begin to expect the worst. The novel explores the convulsive collision of history and family.
