Each session will be from $20 per person with a delicious lunch provided. Register for one LitLunch or all four. Come at noon to grab lunch and a seat, our discussion will begin at 12:30 p.m.

Dates & Titles
May 1 “Slow Motion: A Memoir of a Life Rescued by Tragedy”
In her first memoir, Shapiro offers this powerful true story of a life turned around—not by miracles or happy endings, but by unexpected personal catastrophe.
Discussion facilitated by Heather Michaelson & Maggi Gaines
May 15 “Devotion: A Memoir”
Devotion is a spiritual detective story, a literary excavation to the core of a life. At once poignant, funny, intensely personal, and completely universal, it is the story of a woman whose search for meaning in a constantly changing world ultimately leads her home.
Discussion facilitated by Rabbi Larry Ziffer & Saralyn Elkin
May 29 “Still Writing: The Perils and Pleasures of a Creative Life”
A witty, heartfelt, and practical look at the exhilarating and challenging process of storytelling. At once a memoir, meditation on the artistic process, and advice on craft, Still Writing is an intimate and eloquent companion to living a creative life.
Discussion facilitated by Rabbi Steve Schwartz & Miriam Zadek
June 12 “Hourglass: Time, Memory, Marriage”
Hourglass is an inquiry into how marriage is transformed by time–abraded, strengthened, shaped in miraculous and sometimes terrifying ways by accident and experience.
Discussion facilitated by Rabbi Dana Saroken and Lucille Goldberg
