Our next book is "The Boatmaker", by John Benditt.
Add it to your summer reading list, and join us on Sunday, Sept. 25 to discuss!
"Part fable, part allegory, The Boatmaker is the haunting and passionate story of a voyage of self-discovery. A fierce and complicated man wakes from a fever dream compelled to build a boat and sail away from the isolated island where he was born. Encountering the wider world for the first time, the reluctant hero falls into a destructive love affair, is swept up into a fanatical religious movement, and finds himself a witness to racial hatred unlike anything he’s ever known."
This book won a National Jewish Book Award for best debut fiction last year.
