Literature at Lunch

Our selection for January 14, 2017 is "Snow in August," a beautifully written novel by Pete Hamill set in 1947 in Brooklyn, NY.  Join Rabbi Geoff and Gail Lipsitz to discuss this timely story about breaking down barriers between people of different backgrounds and faiths. Published in 1997 by Back Bay Books (Little, Brown and Company), the book is available in paperback and as an e-book at the Baltimore County Public Library.
