Book Club: “To the Edge of Sorrow”

Please join us on Wednesday, Dec. 2nd at 7 pm in reading the next TBS book club selection, led by Mandy Shamis and Soni Sanberg, discussing “To the Edge of Sorrow” by Aharon Appelfeld, a book recently translated from Hebrew, about a group of Jewish resistance fighters hiding in a Ukrainian forest during the Holocaust.
Told by a 17-year old boy who has joined the group, the novel is a moving story about forging a community during the darkest times. What it means to be Jewish, how to combine various political ideals of mysticism, communism and more are the subjects of this moving book.
