Kol Ami Book Circle: The Lost Shtetl

Saturday, April 10, 2021 28 Nisan 5781

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
 
 
Join us for our virtual book circle as we discuss our next selection: The Lost Shtetl by Max Gross.
 
What if there was a town that history missed?
 
For decades, the tiny Jewish shtetl of Kreskol existed in happy isolation, virtually untouched and unchanged. Spared by the Holocaust and the Cold War, its residents enjoyed remarkable peace. It missed out on cars, and electricity, and the internet, and indoor plumbing. But when a marriage dispute spins out of control, the whole town comes crashing into the twenty-first century.
 
"Winner of the National Jewish Book Award and The Jewish Fiction Award from the Association of Jewish Libraries. The Lost Shtetl is a remarkable debut novel - written with the fearless imagination of Michael Chabon and the piercing humor of Gary Shteyngart - about a small Jewish village in the Polish forest that is so secluded no one knows it exists…until now!"
