For September we'll be reading Shores Upon Shores: From Holocaust to Hope, My True Story by Irene Butter. We'll meet to discuss Shores Beyond Shores on Wednesday, September 11th at 6:30PM.


As Irene's Pappi fights to save his family during the Holocaust, her childhood is lost. By 1945, the family is struggling to survive a death camp, and is offered a singular chance for freedom. Irene's hard-earned lessons are a timeless inspiration.
