We’re excited to kick off our popular series of literary conversations with Anna Katsavos, Ph.D. this year with The New York Times best-selling novel Send for Me by Lauren Fox. The author takes readers on an intergenerational journey that moves between Germany on the eve of World War II and present-day Wisconsin and tells a touching story of love, longing, and the powerful bonds of family.
You'll also learn how UJA is addressing the ongoing needs in our community.
At our December session, we'll discuss Hamnet by Maggie O'Farrell, which fictionalizes the life of William Shakespeare’s family at the time of his son Hamnet’s death and the writing of Hamlet.
We’ll discuss a different book in each session. We ask that you please purchase and read the book in advance.
This series welcomes donors who give a gift of $1,000 or more, individually or as a family, to UJA's 2022 Annual Campaign.
