The Jewish Center's Book Club reads and discusses books of Jewish interest.
The group meets usually on the third Tuesday of the month. Relax with a good book -- and then join us for a lively and engaging discussion. Anyone is welcome to participate, whether you enjoyed the book or not even if you haven't finished it.
Multiple copies of our selections are usually available at the Princeton Public Library on the "Book Club" table. Or you can purchase the book from Amazon. Every time you go to Amazon from our website, The Jewish Center earns up to 15% of each sale.
See the list of previous selections for a taste of the types of books we discuss.

Greetings Fellow Readers!
Sitting here watching the snow fall. What a good day to curl up with a book and a hot cup of something soothing! Who says we cannot travel? Last month's book took us to WWII Shanghai and this month's book takes us to late 19th century Buenos Aires.
The TJC Book Club plans to meet via Zoom again this month. I will email appropriate instructions a couple of days before the meeting, and again on Tuesday, February 16 (about half an hour before our scheduled start time).
This month we will meet on the third Tuesday, February 16, at 7:30pm
to discuss the novel
The Third Daughter by Talia Carner
a historical novel that fictionalizes the shocking true history of young Jewish women who were trafficked into prostitution.
This month's book is available from the Princeton Public Library to borrow as a physical book, however, as of this writing the Princeton Public Library building is closed, at least through January 31. Happily, the book is also available as an e-book from the library. Additionally, it is available as a downloadable audiobook, via hoopla, a free service available through many public libraries including Princeton. (To access hoopla, go to the Princeton Public library website, scroll over but do not click on "BOOKS & MORE." Then slide your cursor down and to the right to click on eBooks. Then click on hoopla.)
As usual, all of our books can be ordered online and you can click on the synagogue link (below) to find the Amazon link that will earn a commission for the Synagogue:
If you'd like your name removed from this e-list, please let me know, but please remember that all other Book Club business should be sent to Louise Sandburg <email@example.com>.
Be safe! Stay well!
