Women of Jeremiah Book Club
Thursday, June 14, 2018, 10:00-11:15 a.m.
This month’s book club read, My Russian Grandmother and Her American Vacuum Cleaner, by Meir Shalev, is a charming tale of family ties, over-the-top housekeeping, and the sport of storytelling in Nahalal, the village of Meir Shalev’s birth. Here we meet Shalev’s amazing Grandma Tonia, who arrived in Palestine by boat from Russia in 1923 and lived in a constant state of battle with what she viewed as the family’s biggest enemy in their new land: dirt. Join us as we discuss this novel of the obsessive but loving Grandma Tonia, the pioneer who gave his childhood its spirit of wonder, and the grit and humor of people building ever-new lives.
