Book Club Reminder: The World Without You by Joshua Henkin


Hello Kveller readers! Here’s a friendly reminder that our upcoming book club chat will happen right here on the blog next Wednesday, February 27.

This month we’re reading
The World Without You
 by novelist Joshua Henkin. Just a teaser: this book explores the aftermath of a son’s death–and how his parents, wife, and sisters are handling life a year later. We’re especially excited for this month’s chat because Henkin’s novel offers us a chance to talk about many issues close to the Kveller reader’s heart, including parenting, Judaism, infertility, and dealing with loss. What’s more–while this month’s featured author is male, The World Without You is written from multiple female perspectives and we think you’ll find there’s lots of literary territory to mine here. 

But wait, there’s more! In addition to our conversation on the blog, Josh has agreed to do a Twitter chat with us on Thursday, February 28th. The chat will be from 12-1 p.m. EST and you’ll be able to follow along with the #kvellerlit hashtag. In the meantime, follow Joshua Henkin and Kveller on Twitter now, and start brainstorming your questions!

And…if you haven’t bought the book yet, buy it on Amazon (Kindle or hardcover) and a portion of the proceeds will help support Kveller. We can’t wait to go book clubbing with all of you!
