The Migdal Chapter of Hadassah at North Shore Towers presents…
Hadassah Book Club to discuss “A Boy in Winter”
HERE’S WHAT THE CRITICS ARE
“A BOY IN WINTER”
BY RACHEL SEIFFERT…
“The power of Seiffert’s
writing comes not from emotional
manipulation or verbal
fireworks but from her marshaling
of the sort of visual detail that makes
her settings feel almost tangible, and
from the bonds she builds between her
wary characters, who, like it or not, must
accept their need for one another. ”
—New York Times
“‘A Boy in Winter’ stretches over only
three days, through which you encounter
all the emotions of the time, horror
and instinct for survival, family loyalty,
and above all, perhaps, bravery.”
— James Naughtie, BBC World TV
On Wednesday, January 30,
Book Club will meet
at 2 p.m. in the Coleridge
Lounge, in the Building #3
Arcade. A discussion of “A
Boy in Winter,” a novel by
Rachel Seiffert, will be led by
Arlene Augenbraun and Bern
From the award-winning author of
the Booker Prize short-listed “The Dark
Room,” Seiffert pens a startling portrait
of the Nazis’ arrival in Ukraine as they
move to implement the final solution.
In a small town is overrun by the SS
early on a gray November morning in
1941, a father, penned in with his fellow
Jews, anxiously awaits word of his
two sons, while a young woman, come
to fetch her sweetheart away from the
invaders, must confront new and harsh
truths about those closest to her.
