JCC Book Club celebrates its 10th year

February 4, 2019

What’s Happening

The Simon Family JCC Book Club had its beginnings in 2008 under the leadership of Sherry Lieberman, then senior adult program coordinator.

Over the past 10 years, the Club has read and discussed 128 books and three short stories, as well as watched three movies related to books read. It has also had guests such as Robert Friedman who attended a meeting to discuss his book, Till We Meet Again, and a virtual presentation (via a conference call) with Barbara Delinsky, who spoke about her book, Family Tree.

The Club belongs to Book Reported.com, Goodreads, and other informational sites which help the group decide future books to read. The goal is to find books that members might not consider for their personal reading and to encourage them to become more informed about many topics.

New members are welcomed. The Book Club meets monthly on the third Monday of the month at 1:30 pm at the Simon Family JCC. For further information, contact Sheryl Luebke, sluebke@ujft.org.

As it enters its 11th year of good reading, the JCC Book Club will be honored at the Monday, March 18 Lee & Bernard Jaffe Family Jewish Book Festival author lunch with Marilyn Simon Rothstein, author of Husbands and Other Sharp Objects.
