Last year, Spertus planned a fantastic line-up around Lisa Pearl Rosenbaum's A Day of Small Beginnings for their One Book, One Community program, featured during Jewish Book Month. This year, Spertus's One Book, One Community program will feature National Jewish Book Award finalist Mary Glickman's One More River.
Events include a kick-off screening of Shalom Ya'll on November 10th, a book discussion on November 29th, and three presentations by Mary at locations across the area. You can find information about all of the One Book, One Community events here. And, don't forget to download Spertus's reader's guide for One More River here, which includes discussion questions, an interview, Southern Jewish recipes, historical bites about Jews in the South, and more.
