RJD Women’s Book Club – “My Mother’s Secret: A Novel of the Jewish Autonomous Region” with Author

May 10 @ 12:30 AM - 1:30 AM

Join RJD Women’s Book Club. Author, Alina Adams, will be joining our book club to discuss her new novel.

“My Mother’s Secret: A Novel of the Jewish Autonomous Region” shines a light on a little known aspect of Soviet history, namely that the first Jewish state of the 20th century was actually established on the border of Russia and China!

Alina Adams takes readers on 18 year old Regina’s journey while, in 1930, she flees Moscow certain she will be captured by the Kremlin. She heads to Birobidzhan, the first Jewish Autonomous Region and located on the boarder of Russia and China. Confused by the actions and betrayals of those she left behind, Regina doesn’t know who to trust and what to believe, until she decides … at great expense … to follow her heart.
