CRS Book Club: Kantika: A Novel by Elizabeth Graver

Thu, Jan 4 • 7:00 PM8:30 PM



Kantika by Elizabeth Graver

“In 1985, when I was twenty-one, I taped my grandmother Rebecca telling stories from her life. …Two decades passed before I returned to the tapes … Slowly, I began to write, and once I started, I couldn’t stop.”

The resulting multi-generational saga moves from Istanbul to Barcelona, Havana and New York, exploring identity, place and exile, and celebrating the insistence on seizing beauty and grabbing hold of one’s life.


Book Club gathers once a month to discuss literature (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or plays) written by a Jewish author or with a theme of Jewish interest. Meetings are self-moderated and led by different members each month. The group nominates and selects their reading material. Every meeting provides spirited conversation and a chance to learn in a stimulating environment.
