We are very excited to welcome Author Mark Sarvas, author of Memento Park – the Temple Israel Reads One Book selection from this past year.

Winner of the 2019 Association of Jewish Libraries Jewish Fiction Award, Memento Park is the story of a son who learns more about his father than he ever could have imagined when a mysterious piece of art is unexpectedly restored to him. After receiving an unexpected call from the Australian consulate, Matt Santos becomes aware of a painting that he believes was looted from his family in Hungary during the Second World War. To recover the painting, he must repair his strained relationship with his harshly judgmental father, uncover his family history, and restore his connection to his own Judaism.

Copies of the book may be purchased at Temple Israel, local bookstores, or online. Also available on Kindle.
