Book Clubs

All three of AJ Sidransky's books are excellent book club selections. When readers finish Forgiving Maximo Rothman, they are left wanting to talk about the issues it brings up: everything from what it means to be Jewish to what is the best way to view Trujillo, who took in 800 Jewish refugees from the holocaust, but also brutally opressed his own people.

Stealing A Summer's Afternoon raises more intimate questions about relationships and moral struggles.

Forgiving Mariela Camacho, the follow-up to Forgiving Maximo Rothman, raises questions about the immigrant experience and about who we consider family.

Below are links to some suggested book club questions you may want to consider. (Note: the questions contain some plot spoilers)
