Book Discussion : Love & Treasure (Ayelet Waldman)
Thursday, February 19, at 1:00 p.m.
Join Ms. Elizabeth Ropers, noted book reviewer, to discuss this compelling postwar story.
American soldiers occupying Austria after World War II discover an immense freight
train full of personal effects pillaged from Hungarian Jews. The story is less concerned with belongings than with belonging–with the Jewish people’s ongoing hunt for community and homeland, and what one character calls “a sense of loyalty and identity.” Those things once stolen, are much harder to get back.
