October Meeting
JOSEF is a Jewish boy living in 1930s Nazi Germany. With the threat of concentration camps looming, he and his family board a ship bound for the other side of the world . . . ISABEL is a Cuban girl in 1994. With riots and unrest plaguing her country, she and her family set out on a raft, hoping to find safety in America . . . MAHMOUD is a Syrian boy in 2015. With his homeland torn apart by violence and destruction, he and his family begin a long trek toward Europe . . . All three kids go on harrowing journeys in search of refuge. All will face unimaginable dangers -- from drownings to bombings to betrayals. But there is always the hope of tomorrow. And although Josef, Isabel, and Mahmoud are separated by continents and decades, shocking connections will tie their stories together in the end. This action-packed novel tackles topics both timely and timeless: courage, survival, and the quest for home.

    What we're about

    The EastReaders, what we're about:

    Having thought provoking discussions that relate to the selected book of the month is what we're after. If you are someone that enjoys not only reading, but also analyzing what you've read to find personal truths and understandings, then, this group is for you!

    We meet the second Thursday of each month at a cafe, coffee shop, or wine bar. Books are chosen by those who attend the meetings regularly. Discussions are limited to 15 people. Age and gender matter not. There is a $1 fee per person, per meeting attended, to offset the cost of maintaining the Meetup account.

    *Members do not need to live in the Fort Lauderdale area. However, our meetings will take place there.
