September 17 @ 7:30 pm - Evening Book Discussion: The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck

Join us on September 17 at 7:30 p.m. as we discuss The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck. The novel tells the story of three women, and their children, who take refuge in the ruins of a Bavarian castle at the end of World War II. The women are war widows - war resistance widows, really - whose husbands paid with their lives for the July 1944 plot against Adolf Hitler. Marianne has promised those who conspired with her husband that she would find and protect their families. But, the support the women give one another is tinged with regrets and guilt about their different pasts, and set against a deprivation for which the world has little sympathy

This event will be held at the East Meadow Jewish Center, 1400 Prospect Ave., East Meadow, NY 11554.
