Rachel Beanland: Florence Adler Swims Forever

truth‚ and pulls the family into an elaborate web of secret-keeping and lies in this debut novel.

Molly Golubcow: The Hotel on St. James Place

By the early 1970s, Atlantic City had seen better days, however, it was not without its charms. It was vastly different than the small shtetl in Poland where Holocaust survivors Harry and Sonia Golubcow once lived. When they became the proprietors of the Seacrest Hotel on St. James Place, they brought their memories with them and maintained their Old World ways. Let’s go to St. James Place and pay a visit to the Seacrest Hotel, as Molly Golubcow, Harry and Sonia’s daughter, vividly remembers it.
