On Wednesday, February 14 at 12:00 p.m. in the Library, the Meyers Library Book Club will meet to discuss the book Hotel Cuba by Aaron Hamburger. Fleeing the chaos of World War I and the terror of the Soviet Revolution, practical, sensible Pearl Kahn and her lovestruck, impulsive younger sibling Frieda sail for America to join their sister in New York. But discriminatory new immigration laws bar their entry, and the young women are turned back at Ellis Island. With few options, Pearl and Frieda head for Havana, Cuba, convinced they will find a way to overcome this setback. A heartbreaking, epic family story, Hotel Cuba explores the profound courage of two women displaced from their home who strive to create a new future in an enticing and dangerous world far different from anything they have ever known. Aside from our programming, we continually bring in new books, including books that are on The New York Times Bestseller List. We welcome book reviews written by our library patrons and will post them in the Meyers Library Updates. Any questions or suggestions? Please feel free to contact me, Linda Roth, at Library@kenesethisrael.org.
