The members of the Ladies Book Club at Old Palm Golf Club are now reading âThe Bridal Chair,â a novel by Gloria Goldreich that covers the key decades in the life of Ida Chagall, the daughter of modernist painter Marc Chagall. Itâs a fascinating time in history, as the novel begins in the 1920s, when painters such as Chagall moved to Paris, and continues into World War II, when the Jewish Chagalls fled to the United States to escape the advancing Nazis. The bookâs title refers to Chagallâs painting of the same name, which he created for his only daughterâs wedding in 1934. âThe Bridal Chairâ is written in a story-telling prose that beautifully evokes time and place. While fact-based, it is an imaginative re-creation of one of the great painters, printmakers, ceramicists and theatrical designers of the 20th century. The Ladies Book Club will meet on January 20 at 4PM in the Ladies Lounge at Old Palm to discuss the best-selling novel. While itâs not necessary to read the book before attending, it is encouraged.
