Our March book is Stella Suberman's The Jew Store
 
In 1920, two years before the author was born, her family became the first Jews to live in the small town of Concordia, Tenn. Against the objections of his wife, Aaron Bronson, a Russian Jewish immigrant who had worked in dry goods stores in Savannag, Ga. and Nashville, started his own business by opening Bronson's Low-Priced Store in Concordia, which the locals called "the Jew store." In this richly detailed memoir, in which her father's optimism contrasts sharply with her mother's anxiety about their ability to provide their children with a Jewish education in their new surroundings, Suberman evokes early-20th-century life in the rural South and depicts her family's struggles to find a place in a town where African Americans  suffered discrimiation and poverty, the Ku Klux Klan was on the march and townspeople viewed Jews with suspicion. 
 
Meeting on: March 29 from 10:00 AM until 12:15 pm. This is an open group that welcomes all readers interested in expanding their understanding of the wide variety of Jewish experiences throughout history and across the world. 
 
Future Book Group dates: April none, May 3, June 14
