3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
The Kol Ami Book Club will be having its third meeting Saturday, May 23, hosted by temple board member David Glickman. This will be a great way to stay connected with our community. We will meet via Zoom from 3:30-4:30 PM and have a book discussion followed by Havdalah. Register here.

Our third book will be Julia Alvarez's acclaimed novel, "Afterlife." In a year that seems to present new challenges for us at every turn, Julia Alvarez’s latest novel, Afterlife, has arrived at the perfect time. The novel begins with Antonia Vega, a writer and college professor whose life is in the midst of falling apart. While grieving the death of her husband and the disappearance of her sister, Antonia must help a pregnant, undocumented teenager whose life suddenly collides with her own. A meditation on family and community, Afterlife illuminates our duty to help others even when we need to help ourselves.This book is available in multiple formats. The LA and Long Beach Public Libraries offer books online for free.
