Things you should know about our club: The Temple Sholom Sisterhood morning book club started 15 years ago at the Temple Sholom of Chicago. It is comprised of senior citizens who meet monthly. Recently our club has expanded to include another group that meets in the evening. Both meetings have an open-door policy and we welcome all to join our discussion.
The authors we want to meet: >Jane Kamensky and Jill Lepore, the authors of "Blindspot," which was our book choice for this month's meeting.
Worst excuse for not reading an assigned book: One of our members read the previous month's book again and didn't realize it until she came to the meeting and we started talking about a different book.
Average time that we spend discussing the book: We normally talk about the book for about 45 minutes before drifting into family news or stories about our grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Then we eat lunch and finally say our goodbyes around 12:30 p.m.
Books we loved: >"A Conspiracy of Paper" by David Liss, "The Ginger Tree" by Oswald Wynd, "People of the Book" by Geraldine Brooks and "Sarah's Key" by Tatiana de Rosnay.
Our next book: We chose "The Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger as our next book because if any of us read it when it came out, we have forgotten.
