Jami Attenberg, St. Mazie: A Novel  (BOOK CLUB PICK)

Like her New York Times bestseller, The Middlesteins, St. Mazie is infused with Jami Attenberg’s signature wit, bravery, and heart. Based on historical fact, readers will fall in love with Mazie Phillips, the big-hearted and bawdy proprietress of the famous Venice movie theater. It's the Jazz Age, and Mazie never turns down a night on the town. But her high spirits mask a childhood rooted in poverty, and her diary, always close at hand, holds her dearest secrets. More than 90 years after Mazie began her diary, it's discovered by a documentarian in search of a good story. Who was Mazie Phillips, really?

Jillian Cantor, The Hours Count: A Novel  (BOOK CLUB PICK)

On June 19, 1953, Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were executed for conspiring to commit espionage. The day Ethel was first arrested in 1950, she left her two young sons with a neighbor, and she never came home to them again. Brilliantly melding fact and fiction, Jillian Cantor, bestselling author of Margot, reimagines the life of that neighbor, and the lives of Ethel and Julius, a seemingly ordinary Jewish couple, who became the only Americans put to death for spying during the Cold War.
