Join us for our book discussion on Monday, August 18, at 7:00 pm! We're reading The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman.
Nearly two thousand years ago, nine hundred Jews held out for months against armies of Romans on Masada, a mountain in the Judean desert. According to the ancient historian Josephus, two women and five children survived. Based on this tragic and iconic event, Hoffman’s novel is a spellbinding tale of four extraordinarily bold, resourceful, and sensuous women, each of whom has come to Masada by a different path.
The lives of these four complex and fiercely independent women intersect in the desperate days of the siege. All are dovekeepers, and all are also keeping secrets—about who they are, where they come from, who fathered them, and whom they love.
Light refreshments are provided. This program will take place in the Tutoring Rooms, located on the upper level of the library. Registration is not required, and new members are welcome! If you’re interested in learning more please contact Rebecca at firstname.lastname@example.org.
