General Book Club

November 11, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join the General Book Club to discuss The Trick, a novel by Emanuel Bergmann, a story about a young boy who needs a miracle and a cynical and disillusioned old man who needs redemption.

In 1934 Prague, a rabbi’s son joins a traveling circus and rises to fame as the magician the Great Zabbatini. Seventy years later in Los Angeles, ten-year-old Max finds an old LP of Zabbatini performing his greatest illusions. But the track in which Zabbatini performs the spell of eternal love—the spell Max believes will keep his parents from getting a divorce—is scratched beyond repair. In desperation, Max seeks out the now elderly magician and begs him for help.

Copies of the book are available in the Adult Services department.
