The MCJC Book Club continues to meet every other month. Our next meeting is Thursday, January 25, 2018, at 7:00 pm. 
We will discuss Moonglow by Michael Chabon. This is the story of a man who bears witness to his grandfather’s deathbed confessions, which reveal his family’s long-buried history and involvement in a mail-order novelty company, World War !!, and the space program.
This book is available in paperback format at libraries, bookstores and online at Amazon, Alibris, and other book sites. Rachel Kamen will again be our facilitator for this program.
Future Book Club dates are March 15 and May 10, 2018. For more information, please see the Events Calendar on this site or contact Rita Janowitz at bookclub@mcjconline.org.
