Jim Van Buskirk leads a discussion of Bee Season by Myla Goldberg. 

When Eliza Naumann, a seemingly unremarkable nine-year-old, wins her district spelling bee, she captures the attention of her father, Saul, absorbed in his study of Jewish mysticism, and displaces her brother, Aaron, who embarks upon a lone quest for spiritual fulfillment. Meanwhile, her brilliant but distant lawyer mother is having a crisis of her own.
