Rachel Beanland Florence Adler Swims Forever
Interviewed by author Barbara Shoup of Indiana Writer’s Center
As so many will attest, this New York Times Best Seller is a thought provoking and entertaining read.
Inspired by her own family history, in her debut novel Beanland takes readers to 1930s Atlantic City, where a multigenerational Jewish family grapples with the aftermath of a shocking tragedy over the course of a summer. Florence Adler Swims Forever is the winner of the 2020 National Jewish Book Award for Debut Fiction, a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice and one of USA Today’s “Best Books of 2020.”
This is a Jewish Book Council program, and this year’s Community Reads book.
