Spending time with ECE-RJ colleagues is always fun, always uplifting. New and old members, come together to discuss a most interesting book, starting with Chagall and ending with “…the world to come…” Book group questions will be available, or come with your own! Dale Sides Cooperman will be hosting the discussion. Here is a brief summary: A million-dollar painting by Marc Chagall is stolen from a museum during a singles’ cocktail hour. The unlikely thief is Benjamin Ziskind, a lonely former child prodigy who writes questions for quiz shows and who is sure the painting used to hang on a wall of his parent's living room. As Ben tries to evade the police, he and his twin sister, Sara, seek out the truth of how the painting got to the museum, whether the “original” is actually a forgery, and whether Sara, an artist, can create a convincing forgery to take its place. Prize-winning author Dara Horn interweaves mystery, romance, folklore, theology, history, and scripture into a spellbinding modern tale. She brings us on a profound collision course of past, present, and future — revealing both the ordinariness and the beauty of “the world to come.” Nestling stories within stories, this is a novel of remarkable clarity and deep inner meaning.
