Escondido, CA - Escondido Public Library invites readers to join the 2nd Tuesday Book Club meeting on November 8, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. in the Turrentine Room. This month’s selection is the The Boston Girl by Anita Diamant. Copies of the book are available for check out and may be reserved in the Library catalog at

Anita Diamant, New York Times bestselling author of The Red Tent, delivers a gripping portrait of Jewish immigrant life in the early 20th century. Elderly grandmother Addie Baum relays her life-story of early poverty, family-strife and her rise as a career woman who stood by her beliefs at all costs. Join the book club and examine how life choices make up who we will become.

The 2nd Tuesday Book Club will continue on December 13, 2016 with a group discussion of Being Mortal: Medicine and What Happens in the End by Atul Gawande.
