Mandel JCC Festival of Books - Jennifer Gilmore
Book Title:  Something Red

"A high-spirited debut novel."- The New Yorker  

Jennifer Gilmore's first novel, Golden Country, was named a New York Times Notable book of 2006 and was a finalist for the National Jewish Book Award.  Gilmore's gift for writing is taken to a new level in her bold and moving second novel, Something Red.

It's 1979 in Washington D.C. and life inside the Goldstein home is as tumultuous as the shifting landscape of the times.  Benjamin is heading off to college and sixteen year old Vanessa is in the throes of a rocky adolescence.  Sharon, a caterer for the Washington elite, ventures into a cult like organization. And Dennis, whose government job takes him often to Moscow, tries to live up to his father's legacy as a union organizer and community leader.  Carter is president; the soldiers who fought in Vietnam have all come home.  The age of protest has come and gone and yet each of the Goldstein's is forced to manage the changes the new decade will bring and explore what is really means to be a radical.
