March: Monday, March 12 at 12:00pm noon (Bring your lunch!)
Enchanted Islands, by Allison Amend
Based on the real-life escapades of Frances and Ainslie Conway, the novel augments the couple’s adventures as WWII American spies with the backstory of how a poor Jewish girl came to be involved in international espionage. Readers meet Franny as a willful child in Depression-era Duluth who escapes her family’s economic and moral tyranny by running off to Chicago with her best friend, the beautiful but flirtatious Rosalie Mendel. After they are torn apart by love and betrayal, Franny eventually makes her way to San Francisco, where she is recruited by U.S. Naval Intelligence for an unlikely assignment: the arranged marriage to an officer spying on German settlers of the Galapagos Islands. Franny accepts the chance to perhaps find the romance and adventure she’d missed. This is a taut, powerful tale of human relationships and the sacrifices people make to maintain their balance.

April:  Wednesday, April 11 at 12:00pm noon (Bring your lunch!)
They May Not Mean To, But They Do, by Cathleen Schine
The Bergman clan’s matriarch, Joy, is not slipping into old age with the quiet grace her children, Molly and Daniel, would have wished. When Joy’s beloved husband dies, Molly and Daniel have no shortage of solutions for their mother’s loneliness and despair, but there is one challenge they did not count on: the reappearance of an ardent suitor from Joy’s college days. And they didn’t count on Joy herself, a mother suddenly as willful and rebellious as their own kids. From one of America’s greatest comic novelists and author of The Three Weissmans of Westport, this is a hilarious new novel about aging, family, loneliness, and love.

May: Thursday, May 10, 12:00pm noon (Bring your lunch!)
The Diplomat’s Daughter, by Karin Tanabe 
As World War II looms, three young people face internment, violence, and shattered futures. The novel elegantly shifts among the storylines of Emi Kato, the daughter of a Japanese diplomat, Leo Hartmann, the son of an Austrian-Jewish banker, and Christian Lange, the son of a German-born steel baron. Tanabe gracefully entwines these lives, deftly depicting the psychological devastation of thwarted futures and poignantly sketching the shifts into cherishing the present moment. A gorgeously sweeping tale of the transcendence of love. (Kirkus Reviews)

June: Monday, June 11, 12:00pm noon (Bring your lunch!)
Leave Me, by Gayle Forman
Every woman who has ever fantasized about driving past her exit on the highway instead of going home to make dinner, and every woman who has ever dreamed of boarding a train to a place where no one needs constant attention–meet Maribeth Klein. A harried working mother who’s so busy taking care of her husband and twins, she doesn’t even realize she’s had a heart attack. Surprised to discover that her recuperation seems to be an imposition on those who rely on her, Maribeth does the unthinkable: she packs a bag and leaves. But, as is often the case, once we get where we’re going we see our lives from a different perspective. Far from the demands of family and career and with the help of liberating new friendships, Maribeth is able to own up to secrets she has been keeping from herself and those she loves.

July: Tuesday, July 10, 12:00pm noon (Bring your lunch!)
Modern Girls, by Jennifer S. Brown
A bookkeeper in 1935 Midtown Manhattan, Dottie Krasinsky steals kisses from her beau, meets her girlfriends for drinks, and eyes the latest fashions. Yet at heart, she is a dutiful daughter, living with her Yiddish-speaking parents on the Lower East Side. So when, after a single careless night, she finds herself in a family way by a charismatic but unsuitable man, she is desperate: unwed, unsure, and running out of options. After the birth of five children—and twenty years as a housewife—Dottie’s immigrant mother, Rose, is itching to return to the social activism she embraced as a young woman. With strikes and breadlines at home and National Socialism rising in Europe, there is more important work to do than cooking and cleaning. So when she realizes that she, too, is pregnant, she struggles to reconcile her longings with her faith. As mother and daughter wrestle with unthinkable choices, they are forced to confront their beliefs, the changing world, and the fact that their lives will never again be the same.


September: Thursday, September 13, 12:00pm noon (Bring your lunch!)
The Weight of Ink, by Rachel Kadish
Helen Watt, an elderly British academic in Jewish studies, sees her final opportunity for fame in a collection of 17th-century documents discovered in the home of a former student. The documents, primarily written in Portuguese and Hebrew, are the work of an unknown scribe, identified by the Hebrew letter aleph. As she researches, Helen and her graduate assistant Aaron Levy find that “aleph” is actually a woman named Ester Velasquez who scribed for a rabbi, blinded during the Inquisition. Ester, like Helen, chose a life of intellect over that of marriage and family. The stories of both women are linked as the novel moves back and forth between their lives 350 years apart. Ester and her blind rabbi are beset by the plague and anti-Semitism while Helen and Aaron struggle through the toxicity of academia and their own botched personal relationships. This astonishing novel introduces readers to the 17th-century Anglo-Jewish world with not only excellent scholarship but also fine storytelling. (Library Journal)
