Congregation Beth David Jewish Book Discussion Group

August 10, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Florence Adler Swims Forever by Rachel Beanland

In 1934, seven-year-old Gussie is staying for the summer with her grandparents, Esther and Joseph Adler, in Atlantic City, a beachside town. Gussie’s mother Fannie (the Adler’s older daughter) is confined to bedrest due to a risky pregnancy. Meanwhile the Adler’s college-age daughter Florence, home for the summer, spends every spare moment training to swim the English Channel. Based on the author’s own family story, this family saga explores the effects of keeping secrets intended to protect those we love. Discussion led by Ginny Baird.
