7:30 October Hadassah Book Club

7:30AM - 9:30AM  

Contact Barbara Mintz

With pandemic numbers rising again, we are uncertain what site we might be able to safely use in October. We have been requesting the use of some space in the AJCC as a more isolated location. At this time many of our members have requested a preference for zoom only meetings for at least several months. I will provide updates as we learn more. We are expecting a startup time of 7:30p.m. to assist more of our out of town participants and working local members. (The use of AJCC might necessitate an earlier start and 6inish time.)


Again, available locations are subject to change. Please contact Barbara Mintz at Barbara@bmintz.com if you have any questions or want to be added to the Zoom registration list. I encourage you to check future emails. 


When We Believed in Mermaids by Barbara O’Neil

Her sister has been dead for ifteen years when she sees her on the TV news… Josie Bianci was killed years ago on a train during a terrorist attack. That’s what her sister, Kit, an ER doctor in Santa Cruz, has always believed. Yet all it takes is a few heartwrenching seconds to upend Kit’s world. Live coverage of a club 6ire in Auckland has captured the image of a woman stumbling through the smoke and debris. Her resemblance to Josie is unbelievable and unmistakable. A 6lood of emotions including grief, loss, and anger surface. Kit needs to 6ind the sister who’s been living a lie. After arriving in New Zealand, Kit begins her journey with the memories of the past: of days spent on the beach with Josie, of a lost teenage boy who’d become part of their family, and of a trauma that has haunted Kit and Josie their entire lives. Now, if two sisters are to reunite, it can only be by unearthing longburied secrets and facing a devastating truth that has kept them apart far too long. To regain their relationship, they may have to lose everything
