This month's selection is Focus by Arthur Miller:

Written in 1945, Focus was Arthur Miller's first novel and one of the first books to directly confront American anti-Semitism. As World War II draws to a close, anti-Semitism is alive and well in Brooklyn, New York. Here, Newman, an American of English descent, floats through a world of multi-ethnic neighborhoods indifferent to the racism around him. That is, until he begins wearing glasses that render him "Jewish" in the eyes of others, making him the target of anti-Semitic persecution.

Sponsored by Gan HaLev-the Jewish Congregation of San Geronimo Valley and the Fairfax Library, and assisted by the Jewish Library of San Francisco.
