Menorah presents “One JCC Reads” on January 29 at the Boulder JCC. This community-wide book club event invites all our JCC friends to read Dara Horn’s acclaimed novel, “All Other Nights,” set during the Civil War, and gather for a community-wide book discussion led by Professor Adam Rovner.
As we commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, we will also show “Jewish Soldiers in Blue and Gray,” with a discussion led by Professor Ronnie Grinberg from CU’s Program in Jewish Studies.
Copies of “All Other Nights” are available at the Boulder JCC Library, HaSifria.
The event is January 29th, 4-8 pm. Cost is $18; includes film, book discussion and a Civil War-themed dinner (including corn chowder and apple pie).
