Pilgrim Women's Book Club

Join us for our January Book Club meeting to discuss Rachael Kadish’s "The Weight of Ink" - WINNER OF A NATIONAL JEWISH BOOK AWARD and A USA TODAY BESTSELLER,

Set in London of the 1660s and of the early twenty-first century, The Weight of Ink is the interwoven tale of two women of remarkable intellect: Ester Velasquez, an emigrant from Amsterdam who is permitted to scribe for a blind rabbi, just before the plague hits the city; and Helen Watt, an ailing historian with a love of Jewish history.

Electrifying and ambitious, sweeping in scope and intimate in tone, “The Weight of Ink” is a sophisticated work of historical fiction about women separated by centuries, and the choices and sacrifices they must make in order reconcile the life of the heart and mind.
