Drop-In Book Club: 'The Last Flight of Poxl West'

  • Jewish Community Library 1835 Ellis Street San Francisco, CA 94115 (map)

Book discussions facilitated by Jim Van Buskirk. Pick up a copy of The Last Flight of Poxl West by Daniel Torday at the Library or at a Pushcart branch at the Palo Alto or San Francisco JCC.

Elijah Goldstein loves his uncle, Poxl West, who for fifty years has portrayed himself as a World War II hero, but who may not have been all that he claimed to be. Winner of the National Jewish Book Award for fiction, this coming-of-age story is a meditation on memory, aspiration, and truth.
