On Nov. 11, Jack Needle, a retired Brookdale Community College history professor, will discuss the life and works of Roth. Rabbi Dov Goldberg will give a Friday night Nov. 30 sermon on Roth’s short novel “Nemesis,” chosen as a Congregation Read.

Needle will discuss the life and works of Bellow on Jan. 27; the series will conclude when Gail Becker presents “Personal Reflections on Norman Mailer” on Feb. 3. Coffee and bagels will be available.
