September Book Club: Identical Strangers by Elyse Schein & Paula Bernstein
Elyse Schein had always known she was adopted, but it wasn’t until her mid-thirties while living in Paris that she searched for her biological mother. What she found instead was shocking: She had an identical twin sister. What’s more, after being separated as infants, she and her sister had been, for a time, part of a secret study on separated twins. Paula Bernstein, a married writer and mother living in New York, also knew she was adopted, but had no inclination to find her birth mother. When she answered a call from her adoption agency one spring afternoon, Paula’s life suddenly divided into two starkly different periods: the time before and the time after she learned the truth. As they reunite, taking their tentative first steps from strangers to sisters, Paula and Elyse are left with haunting questions surrounding their origins and their separation. And when they investigate their birth mother’s past, the sisters move closer toward solving the puzzle of their lives.

Upcoming Meetups

What we're about

Do you enjoy movies? Do you enjoy reading books? Ever been bored and wanted to see a movie but didn't want to go alone? Ever been bored with your selection in books and want to hear what others are reading? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions then this group is for you!!!

This movie and book club meets at least once a month to enjoy a movie with discussion afterwards mainly on the west side of Cleveland. Movies will range from the big blockbusters down to the small interesting independent films. If you like reading and discussing books, then in addition to watching movies once a month the group also meets once a month to read and discuss a new book. Have a book that you really want to read and discuss, then please suggest it to the group! See previews for a movie that you really want to see, then suggest it to the group!

Join us and meet some new friends who share the same interests! Feel free to bring a friend or family member along as well!

*Book Promoters & new authors: Please note that this book club does not accept book offers from authors who are trying to promote their book. This book club reads books that are easily accessible in the local libraries and or on e-books, to ensure that members who do not want to buy a book can still read the book on any given month.*

**Like any other group on meetup, this meetup does have a NO-SHOW Policy. If you do a NO SHOW for 3 events, you are subject to removal from this group. Please pay attention to what you sign up for and if you are unable to attend, then please change your RSVP.
