Young Adult Book Club begins May 7

The Jewish Federation of Greater Portland is starting a Young Adult Book Club. 
We invite you to join other folks in their 20s and 30s in reading our first novel, The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street by Susan Jane Gilman. 
The book encom­pass­es many sto­ries, inter­twin­ing the rise of a woman ice cream mogul with an immigrant’s sto­ry, the twen­ti­eth cen­tu­ry Amer­i­can Jew­ish desire to assim­i­late, women’s rights issues, pover­ty, world wars, McCarthy­ism, the youth move­ment of the '60s, Reagan’s trick­le-down eco­nom­ics, and the over­reach of government. 
The group will engage in stimulating weekly Zoom discussions each Thursday at 5 pm through the end of June. The first meeting will be May 7.
