Join us for an in-person discussion of The Heaven & Earth Grocery Store by James McBride, a big-hearted historical novel about a community of Jews, Blacks, and Italians in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, in the 1920s and 1930s.  The characters have divergent views on many things, but they somehow unite to protect a young deaf black boy that state authorities want to institutionalize.  This suspenseful, comical, heart-warming, and profound work is the winner of the 2023 Kirkus Prize for Fiction.
