Tonight! Downtown Book Club - Wednesday, April 3 at 5:30 pm
The Berghoff: 17 West Adams St., Chicago

There is still time to join CFE members for a dinner and a social book discussion. The book to be discussed is Leaving Berlin, by Joseph Kanon.

From the author of The Good German (made into a film starring George Clooney) comes a sweeping novel set in post-war Berlin. Alex Meier, a young Jewish writer, fled the Nazis for America before the war. But the politics of his youth have now put him in the crosshairs of the McCarthy witch-hunts. Faced with deportation and the loss of his family, he makes a desperate bargain with the fledgling CIA to earn his way back to America by acting as their agent in his native Berlin. From the start things go fatally wrong.

Filled with intrigue and the moral ambiguity of conflicted loyalties, Leaving Berlin is both a masterful thriller and a love story that brings a shadowy period of history vividly to life.

Topaz Cafe: 780 Village Center Drive, Burr Ridge

CFE members will gather at Topaz Cafe in Burr Ridge for a social dinner and book discussion. The featured book is Where the Crawdads Sing, by Delia Owens.

For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life–until the unthinkable happens.
