Book Discussion: Forgiving Maximo Rothman

Sinai Reads: Book Discussion Group

Forgiving Maximo Rothman
By A.J. Sidransky
Tuesday, November 14 at 7:30pm


On a chilly autumn night in New York, the lives of two men born decades and continents apart collide when Max Redmond is found bludgeoned in his Washington Heights apartment. While investigating the crime, Detective Tolya Kurchenko comes across the dead man’s diaries, written by Redmond over four decades. He hopes the diaries will lead him to the killer. In fact, they help him sort out the complexities of his own identity. Spanning 65 years and three continents – from Hitler’s Europe to the decaying Soviet Empire of the 1970s, and revealing the little-known history of Sosúa, a Jewish settlement in the jungles of the Dominican Republic – A. J. Sidransky’s debut novel leads us into worlds long gone, and the lives of people still touched by those memories.

The Village of East Hills is reading this book and then having the author come and speak on Tuesday, October 31 at 7:00pm in the Village Lounge. The book sounds fascinating. We thought that it would be fun to read the same book, attend the Village of East Hills author discussion, and then discuss the book on our own. Free of charge.

All are welcome. RSVP [email protected] or call the Temple office.
