    At our next Book Club meeting, we will be discussing Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity and Love by Dani Shapiro. https://www.jewishbookcouncil.org/book/inheritance-a-memoir-of-genealogy-paternity-and-love What makes us who we are? What combination of memory, history, biology, experience, and that ineffable thing called the soul defines us? In the spring of 2016, through a genealogy website to which she had whimsically submitted her DNA for analysis, Dani Shapiro received the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. She woke up one morning and her entire history--the life she had lived--crumbled beneath her. Inheritance is a book about secrets--secrets within families, kept out of shame or self-protectiveness; secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. It is the story of a woman's urgent quest to unlock the story of her own identity, a story that has been scrupulously hidden from her for more than fifty years, years she had spent writing brilliantly, and compulsively, on themes of identity and family history. It is a book about the extraordinary moment we live in--a moment in which science and technology have outpaced not only medical ethics but also the capacities of the human heart to contend with the consequences of what we discover. (from Amazon.com) All book club books may be purchased from Amazon through the link on the YI website, which will provide Young Israel with 10 percent of the purchase price. We also try to ensure that there are sufficient copies available through the Sharon Public Library system for all of our book club selections. (In addition, several of our current book club members have indicated that they have library cards through the Minuteman Library System (https://www.minlib.net/our-libraries) and were able to obtain copies of books at the Norwood, Needham, Newton and Brookline libraries among many others.) New members are always welcome. Hope to see you there!
