The Marriage of Opposites by Alice Hoffman is based on the story of Rachel Pizzaro and her son Camille Pizzaro, the father of impressionism.
The Jewish Book Council describes:  Set in the beautiful and vividly drawn island of St. Thomas, The Marriage of Opposites creates an intense world of political strife, familial anguish, and, of course, heartbreaking love that makes this clear: the world that one is presented with is never a clear reflection of reality. Everyone has secrets.

Little Failure by Gary Shteyngart
The book is a humorous memoir of what it was like to be uprooted as a child from the monochromatic world of USSR and plunked down in 1979 in the perplexing and gloriously Technicolor world of the U. S. of A. (NY Times).

Author Reading | May 22 @ 7pm
Kellogg-Hubbard Library in Montpelier will be hosting an Author Reading of 13 Stradomska Street: A Memoir of Exile and Return by Andy Potok on Monday, May 22 at 7:00pm.
This book is the result of a trip back to Poland which Andy and his wife made four years ago when a Polish lawyer called out of the blue to tell him about a small apartment house that belonged to his grandmother and was wrongly inherited after the war. He was asked to fly to Krakow, all expenses paid, to claim the property before a Polish court. This experience, his third trip to Poland since his escape in 1939, brought childhood traumas back with a vengeance, leading to a painful re-examination of Potok's life. Join Andy as he talks about his personal experience with the horrors of war, displacement, and of being a refugee.  This program is at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library, 135 Main Street, Montpelier, VT. Please call 802-223-3338 for more information.
