Message from Karen Block, WL Reads Chair

We are excited to announce our next WL Reads selection, “Where The Lilacs Bloom Once Again, Friddie’s Story” by Roni Rosenthal.

The author chronicles her family’s struggles for survival as relayed through the story of her great grandmother and great aunt. Told in novel fashion, this is a tragic-heroic tale of strength based on the true stories of a Jewish Romanian family.

Ms. Rosenthal is the director of Judaic Studies and a Hebrew Literature Professor at the University of Maryland. She will be our guest speaker November 2, 2023 at 8:00 PM.

Registration will open soon.
