If you are a night owl and a book worm, please join us for our evening book group. The featured book this month will be The Netanyahus: An Account of a Minor and Ultimately Even Negligible Episode in the History of a Very Famous Family by Joshua Cohen.

2022 Pulitzer Prize winner for Fiction and named one of the notable books of 2021 by The New York Times
Corbin College, not quite upstate New York, winter 1959-1960: Ruben Blum, a Jewish historian—but not an historian of the Jews—is co-opted onto a hiring committee to review the application of an exiled Israeli scholar specializing in the Spanish Inquisition. Benzion Netanyahu shows up for the interview, family unexpectedly in tow, Blum plays the reluctant host. Mixing fiction with nonfiction, The Netanyahus is a wildly inventive, genre-bending comedy of blending, identity, and politics that finds Joshua Cohen at the height of his powers. The New York Times described it as “absorbing, delightful, hilarious, breathtaking and the best and most relevant novel I’ve read in what feels like forever.” 

Facilitator: Wende Jager-Hyman
