Jewish Family Services adds daytime session to book series

Due to popular demand, Jewish Family Services (JFS) is adding a daytime session to its book series, JFS Book Beat.

The new series, JFS Book Beat: A Woman’s Morning Out, is an accompaniment to evening session A Woman’s Night Out. Both series include a diverse mix of fiction, memoir, biography and short stories. Each book in the series includes themes relevant to Jews today and that “lend themselves to compelling conversation.”

Judi Margolin, an avid reader and author, serves as facilitator of JFS Book Beat.

The first JFS Book Beat morning session will take place on Wednesday, April 30, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, at Jewish Family Services of Greenwich, located at One Holly Hill Lane. At 10:30 a.m., baked goods and coffee will be served and at 10:45 a.m. the book discussion will commence. Previously scheduled JFS Book Beat: A Woman’s Night Out will take place as planned on Wednesday, April 30, at 7:30 p.m.

Both groups will be reading William H. Gass’s new novel, Middle C.

Two decades in the making, Middle C moves from World War II Europe to a small town in postwar Ohio, where a colorful family of Austrian emigrants cast themselves as Jews. It tells the story of a journey that is also an investigation into the nature of human identity and “the ways in which each of us is several selves.”

The cost for one session of Book Beat is $25. Sign-up deadline is Friday, April 25. To register, call the JFS office at 203-622-1881, or for more information, email [email protected]
