The series, which features discussions of award-winning novels that explore the past, includes:

June 17 from 10:00am-11:00amEternal by Lisa Scottoline: This novel offers a sweeping epic story of historical fiction fueled by shocking, true events that took place in the Jewish ghetto in Rome during the Holocaust. It also depicts a love triangle that unfolds in the heart of Rome in the creeping shadow of fascism.

July 15 from 10:00am-11:00amThe Map of Salt and Stars by Jennifer Zeynab Joukhadar: In 2011, the peace of the Syrian city of Homs is disturbed by protests and shelling. The Map of Salt and Stars interweaves the tales of two heroines coming of age in perilous times and shines a light on a country in turmoil, human resilience, and the power of stories.

August 19 from 10:00am-11:00am, The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray: The remarkable novel tells the story of J. P. Morgan’s personal librarian, Belle da Costa Greene, the Black American woman who was forced to hide her true identity and pass as white in order to leave a lasting legacy that enriched our nation.
