Our next selection for Book Club is titled "The Golem and the Jinni" by Helene Wecker. A potluck and discussion will take place on Tuesday, May 12th, at 6:00 p.m. at
Jill Waldman's home, 1164 Longview Circle. (Enter through the garage). Please RSVP to Jill at steamboatevents@hotmail.com to let her know you will be coming and whether you will bring a side dish or dessert.

The following is a description of the book by amazon.com:

In The Golem and the Jinni, a chance meeting between mythical beings takes readers on a dazzling journey through cultures in turn-of-the-century New York. Chava is a golem, a creature made of clay, brought to life to by a disgraced rabbi who dabbles in dark Kabbalistic magic and dies at sea on the voyage from Poland. Chava is unmoored and adrift as the ship arrives in New York harbor in 1899. Ahmad is a jinni, a being of fire born in the ancient Syrian desert, trapped in an old copper flask, and released in New York City, though still not entirely free. Ahmad and Chava become unlikely friends and soul mates with a mystical connection. Marvelous and compulsively readable, Helene Wecker's debut novel The Golem and the Jinni weaves strands of Yiddish and Middle Eastern literature, historical fiction and magical fable, into a wondrously inventive and unforgettable tale.

Hope to see you there!
