Book discussions facilitated by Jim Van Buskirk. Pick up a copy of When a Crocodile East the Sun: A Memoir of Africa by Peter Godwin at the Library or at a Pushcart branch at the Palo Alto or San Francisco JCC.

As journalist Peter Godwin records the collapse of his native Zimbabwe, he is confronted with his father’s deathbed confession. The elder Godwin had always claimed to have been British, but he reveals himself to be a Polish Jew whose mother and sister were killed in Treblinka.
