TBS Book Club

People of The Book

Interested in joining a monthly book club whose members discuss books about Jews, Jewish history and historical fiction, Jewish traditions, culture, and more?

The TBS Book Club may be for you!

Begun in April 2022, the TBS Book Club meets monthly (with a few exceptions) on Zoom, usually on the second Sunday of the month at 2 p.m.

New members are always welcome. 

Originally, during the pandemic, the TBS Book Club met in-person outdoors, but since August 2022, we’ve met exclusively on Zoom. This is in part because our very dedicated organizer, Emily Kahn-Freedman, moved to New York but still loves connecting with TBS via the book club.

Books are selected two months in advance, at the end of each meeting, by the people who attend that meeting. We now have a long list of fascinating titles, many of them historical fiction, but also nonfiction and contemporary fiction, all with a Jewish theme. Members are encouraged to continue to add to the list of books for possible selection. 


You are invited to join our email list and receive information about the next two books selected (often before the titles appear on this website), as well as the Zoom link and reminders about each meeting. There is no obligation to attend, although RSVPs are always appreciated. Simply contact Emily Kahn-Freedman to be added to the emailing list. Emily will also send you the full list of books we’ve already read or are considering reading.

You can easily read about each upcoming book selection on the bookseller website of your choice, as well as (usually) on the website of the Santa Fe library.

The June book (Sunday, June 9) is

The Familiar

by Leigh Bardugo.

Please note that the July meeting of the TBS Book Club has been

canceled by mutual consent.

People Love Dead Jews
