In honor of the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein (American composer, conductor, author, music lecturer, and pianist, who was born in Lawrence, MA, in 1918), our next YI Book Club selection will be Family Matters: Sam, Jennie and the Kids by Burton Bernstein. Family Matters, originally in the New Yorker, is about the Bernsteins — Sam, the father; Jennie, the mother; and their three children: Leonard, Shirley and Burton, the book's author.

We also try to ensure that there are sufficient copies available through the Sharon Public Library system for all of our Book Club selections. New members are always welcome. Hope to see you there!
