JBC/Jewcy Twitter Book Club
November 12, 2013 at 1:30 pm ET: Natasha Solomons'
London, 1958. It's the eve of the sexual revolution, but in Juliet Montague's conservative Jewish community where only men can divorce women, she finds herself a living widow, invisible. Ever since her husband disappeared seven years ago, Juliet has been a hardworking single mother of two and unnaturally practical. But on her thirtieth birthday, that's all about to change. A wealthy young artist asks to paint her portrait, and Juliet, moved by the powerful desire to be seen, enters into the burgeoning art world of 1960s London, which will bring her fame, fortune, and a life-long love affair.
What is a Twitter Book Club?
A twitter book club provides the opportunity for Twitter users to engage in real time conversation about a particular, predetermined book. JBC and Jewcy's Twitter Book Club gives readers a way to discuss Jewish interest titles with the author and other interested readers electronically.
If you aren't already a Twitter user, please join Twitter here. (Confused about Twitter altogether? Visit the twitter twitorial.) Follow the Jewish Book Council (@jewishbook) and Jewcy (@jewcymag). During the designated time and date of the book club follow the conversation by searching for #JLit. If you would like to actively participate, please include #JLit at the end of any comments or questions you wish to contribute. If you have something to say or a question to ask, feel free to jump in, and don't forget to include #JLit at the end of any tweet so that other participants can engage with you.
The easiest way to follow, and join, the conversation is by using this link: http://tweetchat.com/room/JLit
(Note: New twitter users may have to wait up to a week before their tweets get saved in hashtag searches. Open a twitter account at least a week and a half before this discussion in order to join us!)
