Join us for TI Reads One Book
Memento Park by Mark Sarvas
Sunday, May 31 at 10:00am

We are very excited to bring back the Temple Israel Reads One Book program: an opportunity for our congregation and community to engage with one another around one specific piece of literature. The JJL Committee is proud to have selected the book Memento Park by author Mark Sarvas, published in 2018. 

Winner of the 2019 Association of Jewish Libraries Jewish Fiction Award, Memento Park is the story of a son who learns more about his father than he ever could have imagined when a mysterious piece of art is unexpectedly restored to him. After receiving an unexpected call from the Australian consulate, Matt Santos becomes aware of a painting that he believes was looted from his family in Hungary during the Second World War. To recover the painting, he must repair his strained relationship with his harshly judgmental father, uncover his family history, and restore his connection to his own Judaism.

Of all the questions asked by Mark Sarvas’ Memento Park ― about family and identity, about art and history―a central, unanswerable predicament lingers: How do we move forward when the past looms unreasonably large?
