Now that almost all of the books from our spring preview are available at your local bookstore, we’re picking up where the last JBC Bookshelf left off with a few highlights from the summer list. We’re excited to share a peek into next season’s books! Look out for a biography of the Lubavitcher Rebbe from Rabbi Joseph Telushkin; the next Jewish Book World book club pick, Boris Fishman’s A Replacement Life; a fascinating history of two scientists who used their work toward a cure for typhus to sabotage the Nazis; Stephanie Feldman’s novel, The Angel of Losses, described as The Tiger’s Wife meets History of Love; and a slew of other great books.
Now there’s another reason to look forward to summer!
