Book Club: Natalie Ruth Joynton, Welcome to Replica Dodge

Join us for our first-ever book-club meeting!  (No reading necessary to participate in this fun and interesting evening.)  We are reading Natalie Ruth Joynton's enchanting memoir, Welcome to Replica Dodge (Wayne State University Press, 2019).  Our meeting will feature Q&A with the author!
About the memoir: A newly converted Jew, Joynton moves to a Northern Michigan farm with a life-size replica of Dodge City, Kansas in the front yard.  A city girl now hundreds of miles from the nearest synagogue, Joynton builds a new life with her non-Jewish fiancé and in the process discovers herself.
