Sisterhood Book Club to Meet This Monday

News from NHBZ Book Club 

Many thanks to Myra Radinsky for hosting the September 19 Book Club discussion of The Last Summer at the Golden Hotel, by Elyssa Friedland. Members gathered at Myra’s lovely home and shared an entertaining and nostalgic discussion of the novel. 

The next book club meeting will be Mon., Dec. 5, and the book selection is By Fire Possessed: Dona Gracia Nasi, by Sandra Toro, the historical novel about the life of Doña Gracia Nasi, the intelligent, wealthy and strong Jewish woman who saved thousands of Sephardic families from the Inquisition during the sixteenth century.

The Book Club usually meets on the fourth Monday of odd-numbered months from 7:15-8:45 PM. The first meeting in 2023 will be on Jan. 23! 

All women are welcome! For more information, contact Fran Alper at 314-993-4024 or fran.alper@outlook.com or sisterhood@nhbz.org.
