In 2020, resolve to step out of your familiar reading routine and travel to parts unknown through literature.  We begin 2020 with one of the world’s newest and oldest languages – Modern Hebrew.   Our first book is And the Rat Laughed by Nava Semel with discussion lead by Lani Ravin on Wednesday, January 22 at 6:30pm.  This five-part short novel by Israeli novelist Nava Semel explores the complexity of memory, storytelling and the life of a story beyond its original telling.
