fleishman is in trouble

Online JCA Book Group w/ Fionna Nilsson - Fleishman is in Trouble 

Sunday, May 17th, 10:00AM

Book group participation is free. Register to receive the Zoom session link.

Join us for a virtual discussion of Taffy Brodesser-Akner’s debut novel Fleishman is in Trouble. Our hope is to check in with each other, share our thoughts and insights into the novel, and share the books we’ve been turning to in this unprecedented time. Time will be reserved at the end of the discussion to talk about what we as a community would like in a virtual book group with the hope of settling on a structure that excites us as readers and connects us socially in a time of physical distancing.

A searing, utterly unvarnished debut, Fleishman Is in Trouble is an insightful, unsettling, often hilarious exploration of a culture trying to navigate the fault lines of an institution that has proven to be worthy of our great wariness and our great hope.

Fionna Nilsson has been facilitating Book Groups through the Portland Public Library since August 2019. She and her family have been members of the JCA for close to four years and she is thrilled to be sharing her love of books and reading with this community.
