Our book club met this month for our tenth anniversary celebration. We decided on The Bridal Chair. Some of us were reluctant to read because we all thought it was romance. W were wrong.Elaine Karpel, a snowbird from upstate New York. Arranged for the author, Gloria Goldreich to speak to us through speaker phone. It was wonderful listening to her and learning about the Chagall’s and what she thought.
The Bridal Chair, is not about Marc Chagall instead it is centered on his daughter, Ida. The author states that the novel, Bridal Chair is pretty accurate on the life of Marc Chagall’s daughter and her father, Marc and her mother Bella.
I reviewed Bridal Chair about a month ago after our book club. I am surprised I still remember some of it. Some of it is somewhere in my memory. Please forgive me if I am not accurate in places, people at exact time and names. I would like to thank Source Book for sending me a review copy and allowing our book club to talk to the author, Gloria Goldreich. Also here is a few other reviews here,
Our book club had our tenth anniversary this month. We met at my friend’s house, Carrol’s. The theme of food was Russian, French, Jewish cuisine. There was so much food, and drinks. Our belly’s were quite full. My friend Donna’s husband made a cake for the occasion.
We had great conversation. There was so much to discuss about Ida, and her parents. The family dynamics, Jewish rejection or wasn’t it?, What does he’s drawings represents? His daughter relationship with his father? Thank you Elaine for arranging the author to speak to us. Thank you Gloria.
Kate Lloyd, from Simon and Schuester was so kind. As a gift for our tenth anniversary. Simon and Schuester Publishing gave each of the book club members a copy of, The Lights We Cannot See to our book club she gave us ten copies of the novel, We will be discussing next month.
