Jonathan Safran Foer’s novel, Everything is Illuminated will be the subject of our discussion this month.

The fabled history of his grandfather’s shtetl, or village, is juxtaposed with events in the present using comedy interspersed with tragedy. Generations become united across time in this fanciful tale, as Foer, the author, gives the reader a contemporary version of 19th-century Jewish drama one that blends laughter and tears.

Evening Book Discussion choices are available at the Circulation Desk.
