Book Club at TC announces 2019-20 schedule

The Book Club at Temple Concord usually meets the first Tuesday of the month at 10:30 am. This year required several modifications to the schedule. With just about all the fall holidays on Mondays and Tuesdays in October, the October meeting has been moved to Thursday, October 3, between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Since the club does not meet on Election Day because Temple Concord is a polling place, the November meeting will take place a week later, on November 12. The “April” meeting will be a week early, on March 31, because the first Tuesday in April is the day before the first seder.
All Book Club events are free and open to the public; it is not necessary to have read the book to attend and participate in the discussion. Refreshments are available.
The book review schedule is:
Tuesday, August 6 – “The Fox Hunt: A Refugees’s Memoir of Coming to America” by Mohammed Al Samawi. Al Samawi’s escape from Yemen was organized via a social media network of interfaith friends and acquaintances.
