Books & Bagels Series
Books & Bagels
If you love to read, then you'll love our Sisterhood Book Club, Books and Bagels.
We'll be meeting virtually this Fall to connect, catch up and discuss our current book!! Please feel free to join us even if you have not yet read our current selection! We'd love for you to join us! A Zoom link will be provided as the date gets closer! Please plan to BYOB (bring your own bagel) and we'll see you "there"! Here's a blurb about the book:
Our first book for the Fall is Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love by Dani Shapiro. In the spring of 2016, through a genealogy website to which she had whimsically submitted her DNA for analysis, Dani Shapiro received the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. She woke up one morning and her entire history–the life she had lived–crumbled beneath her. Inheritance is a book about secrets–secrets within families, kept out of shame or self-protectiveness; secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. It is the story of a woman’s urgent quest to unlock the story of her own identity, a story that has been scrupulously hidden from her for more than fifty years, years she had spent writing brilliantly, and compulsively, on themes of identity and family history. It is a book about the extraordinary moment we live in–a moment in which science and technology have outpaced not only medical ethics but also the capacities of the human heart to contend with the consequences of what we discover.
