The Lessans Family Literary Series

LESSANS FAMILY Literary Series

Love to read? Enjoy meaningful discussions?  The Bender JCC is thrilled to announce our first in-person Summer Book Club, as part of our Lessans Family Literary Series. This program will be held outdoors.   We are fortunate to welcome Bender JCC community member Deborah Kalb who will serve as our moderator.   It’s a great way to safely gather, make new friends, and engage in interesting conversation.  All are welcome.
