One Bay One Book Closing Event with Author Dalia Sofer (Beyt Knesset)
Join the Etz Chayim Bookworms for our next reading project, The Septembers of Shiraz, followed by an event with author Dalia Sofer.
We usually meet on the first Sunday of each month at 4:30 pm, but not in June. We are meeting on the second Sunday, June 10, at 7:00 pm, in coordination with the Jewish Community Library, and with a special welcome for author Dalia Sofer. There will be Persian treats. Mark your calendar; you won't want to miss it.
This book is the annual selection for One Bay One Book, a city-wide book club organized by the Jewish Community Library. Read it with us and have great conversations with readers all over Northern California.
You can find The Septembers of Shiraz at your local public library. You can also borrow a copy from the Jewish Community Library, and arrange to have it delivered to the Palo Alto OFJCC or even to Etz Chayim.
Dalia Sofer, The Septembers of Shiraz
In the aftermath of the Iranian revolution, rare-gem dealer Isaac Amin is arrested, wrongly accused of being a spy. Terrified by his disappearance, his family must reconcile a new world of cruelty and chaos with the collapse of everything they have known. As Isaac navigates the terrors of prison, and his wife feverishly searches for him, his children struggle with the realization that their family may soon be forced to embark on a journey of incalculable danger.
