Book Discussion Group: Windy City Blues

Tue, 11/07/2017 - 1:18pm -- Library Spotlight

We will be reading Windy City Blues by Renee Rosen on Tuesday, November 28 at 7:30 PM. This is the book chosen for the Spertus One Book | One Community program for 2017. 

"At a 1960's Chicago record company, Leeba Groski eventually comes into her own as a songwriter. Her life-changing relationship with Red Dupree, a black blues guitarist from Louisiana, is unwelcome in segregated Chicago and shunned by Leeba's Orthodox Jewish family. Yet, in the midst of the Civil Rights Movement, Leeba and Red discover that in times of struggle, music can bring people together."
