Author to show unique look at Jewish history at book discussion

Jewish Family Services (JFS) is set to discuss another nail biter as their Book Beat program presents The Bookseller’s Sonnets by Andi Rosenthal on June 5.

The story begins when a mysterious package from an anonymous donor arrives on the desk of Jill Levin, curator at a Holocaust museum. It’s a centuries-old secret diary, written by the eldest daughter of St. Thomas More. Is it genuine? Is it a fake? What does the ancient text have to do with Jewish history, in any event?

The diary leads to the unraveling of long-kept family secrets. A unique look at Jewish families, people of faith, and people in interfaith relationships, past and present, it’s a novel readers won’t be able to put down, according to JFS.

The author, Ms. Rosenthal, will join Book Beat attendees for wine and cheese and to answer questions and discuss her book, facilitated by Judi Margolin.

The event begins at 7 p.m. with wine and cheese followed by the book discussion from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at JFS One Holly Hill Lane.

The fee for the event is $25. Call the JFS office at 203-622-1881 to register or for more information.
