Description: The CCW Book Club invites you to join us to discuss Hope: A Tragedy. A New York Times Notable Book of 2012, the first novel from Shalom Auslander (author of critically-acclaimed memoir A Foreskin's Lament) is a hilarious and haunting examination of the burdens and abuse of history, propelled with unstoppable rhythm and filled with existential musings and mordant wit. It is a comic and compelling story of the hopeless longing to be free of those pasts that haunt our every present.

Location: TBD at a Metro-accessible location. RSVP for details.
