Sisterhood Summer Send-Off and Book Discussion

Sunday, June 3 | 10: 00AM 
Sisterhood of Union Temple invites you to their Sumptuous Summer Send-Off.

Join us as we hold our election and celebrate the end of a terrific season with a discussion of our own Barbara Brett’s exciting new thriller:

SECRET AGENDA: Who’s Castrating the Wolves of Wall Street?

A longtime book editor and publisher, Barbara is the author of four earlier highly acclaimed novels. Her newest, Secret Agenda, is a riveting mystery of political ambition set in the glittering heights of New York society and the darkest depths of Wall Street depravity. It also has a handsome Jewish former police lieutenant who runs a bookstore in Brooklyn!

Haven’t read or finished the book? Not to worry. You are still sure to have much to add to the stimulating discussion.

Don’t miss this memorable morning of friendship and fun.  There will be a delicious brunch and an exciting mystery raffle too. It will keep you going until we meet again in the fall!
