Virtual Book Group: The Third Daughter

Virtual Book discussion followed by a conversation with author Talia Carner.

Batya, a Jewish Russian girl lives in Eastern Europe in the late 1800s. Her beauty is noticed by a wealthy businessman, Moscowitz, who convinces Batya’s father to let him marry her although she is only 14. Later, Batya is taken to Buenos Aires, where Moscowitz is part of a sex trafficking organization called Zwi Migal. One thought alone sustains her: she must find a way to make enough money to allow the rest of her family to escape the Russian pogroms. Thoroughly researched and vividly rendered, The Third Daughter illuminates a little known piece of history: the sex trafficking of young women from Russia to South America in the late 19th century.

Book Discussion: 12pm
Conversation with Talia Carner: 1pm
