Keep Calm and Read On
Join us online to discuss a classic Jewish-themed short story for the month of June: Philip Roth's, "Defender of the Faith" from his first book, Goodbye, Columbus. A Jewish-American army sergeant near the end of the Second World War first helps and later resists a Jewish soldier trainee who tries to use their shared ethnicity to wheedle favors, including keeping him out of the Pacific conflict after the war in Europe is over.
Access to the short story is included in your registration confirmation email.
