The JCCNV’s Special Needs Committee has launched a book club focusing on books about special needs, non-fictional stories of inspiration, and books related to disabilities to broaden our knowledge. Book club meetings are held at the J every six weeks from 6:30pm–7:30pm prior to the special needs committee meetings.
We have exciting news! We are delighted to confirm that Bob Fuss, author of the newly published memoir "Kidnapped by the Nuns: And Other Stories of a Life on the Radio" will be our guest speaker on Wednesday evening, September 16 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm to discuss his career and life with us!
Please note: Due to the Jewish High Holy Days, we are scheduling our meeting on Wednesday evening of that week and not on Tuesday as usual.
Here is Amazon's 5 star review of his book:
Taking readers on a journey over the last four decades of news from Hollywood to Washington and around the world from Andorra to Zimbabwe. Ride the campaign plane with Ronald Reagan, get the inside story of why Congress is such a disaster and share adventure travel stories from a globetrotting correspondent. Retired CBS News Correspondent Bob Fuss has traveled with half a dozen Presidents, covered Congress for more than 20 years and includes travelogues from his adventures around the world. One unique aspect is that while millions of listeners heard his daily reports, none knew he was disabled and has always walked on crutches.
This will be an opportunity to participate in a memorable and "not to be missed" discussion!
The book is available in paperback, kindle and audiobook at Amazon or directly through the web site kidnappedbynuns.com. Bookstores can order it if a customer asks, but generally they don't stock independent books.
We would appreciate your RSVP via email by Monday evening, September 7 so the J can reserve a room to comfortably fit the number of people attending.
Looking forward to seeing you in September!
