Book Club | Fiction Book Group: The Queen of the Night by Alexander Chee (online)


The group discusses Chee’s book, a “wild opera of a novel” that tells the story of Lilliet Berne, an orphan who leaves the American frontier for Europe and is swept into the glamour and terror of Second Empire France. In an epic, sweeping, soaring tale, Chee plots Lilliet’s cunning transformation from circus rider to courtesan to legendary soprano, retracing the path that led to the role that could secure her reputation—or destroy her with the secrets it reveals.

Film | Final Account (2020): The Last Living Generation of the Third Reich


An urgent portrait of the last living generation of everyday people to participate in Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich. Over a decade in the making, the film raises vital, timely questions about authority, conformity, complicity and perpetration, national identity, and responsibility. Men and women ranging from former SS members to civilians in never-before-seen interviews reckon—in very different ways—with their memories, perceptions, and appraisals of their own roles in the greatest human crimes in history. Dir. Luke Holland 90 min.

Book Discussion | The Kitchen Without Borders: Recipes and Stories from Refugee and Immigrant Chefs (online)


The co-founders of Eat Offbeat, siblings Manal and Wissam Kahi, present their very special cookbook, The story begins with hummus — First, through Manal’s dissatisfaction with grocery store hummus and second, the success of using her grandmother’s recipe. How many other family recipes were being made all over the city? Thus, the concept of Eat Offbeat was born. Staffed by immigrants and refugees, the company hinges on three foundations: “The first is to create quality jobs for talented refugees who want to be in the food industry. The second is to build community and build bridges between us cooking in the kitchen, and our customers having our food at home or at the office…” And finally, “…the third goal for us, ultimately, is about changing the narrative around refugees by showcasing a different and a more positive story.” Story is inherent in the book, inspired from its detailed chef profiles to its seventy authentic recipes, which highlight the emotional connection of food and home and celebrate the culinary traditions of Syria, Iran, Eritrea, Venezuela, and more.
