After a summer break, the CBI Book Club will be meeting again via Zoom on September 22 from 7:30pm to 8:30pm. For the September meeting, we will discuss The Book of Separation: A Memoir by Tova Mirvis, described by the The New York Times as “an intimate tale of departure” that “movingly conveys the heartache that accompanies the abandonment of one life in search of another.”
An accomplished novelist, Mirvis compellingly charts in this memoir her “separation” from the Orthodox Jewish culture that she grew up and married within. Tova is 40 years old and raising (along with her former husband) three children when the book begins. “Beautifully written and fiercely honest,” Tova Mirvis’s memoir illuminates “the too often dormant power within all of us to live in accordance with who we truly are.” Her memoir begins on the High Holidays, making our September meeting an apt time for our discussion of her book. We hope you’ll join us.
This book is available for a reduced price at BookOutlet.com.
