The CAMP Rehoboth Book Club is a queer-facilitated discussion group dedicated to reading novels about queer topics and/or books by queer authors that tackle a variety of interest and subject matters. We alternate between fiction, non-fiction, YA. This group typically meets on the last Monday of every month starting at 5:30 PM on Zoom. Use the link at the bottom of this page to register for the zoom. 


Our book club aims to bring all members of our community together in a safe, supportive and inclusive space to enjoy literature, conversation and most of all engage with each other. This group is open to all regardless of sexuality and gender.

The Book Club Selection for May is When Angels Left the Old Country by Sacha Lamb. 

 

About the Book

For fans of “Good Omens”—a queer immigrant fairytale about individual purpose, the fluid nature of identity, and the power of love to change and endure. 

Uriel the angel and Little Ash (short for Ashmedai) are the only two supernatural creatures in their shtetl (which is so tiny, it doesn't have a name other than Shtetl). The angel and the demon have been studying together for centuries, but pogroms and the search for a new life have drawn all the young people from their village to America. When one of those young emigrants goes missing, Uriel and Little Ash set off to find her. 

Along the way the angel and demon encounter humans in need of their help, including Rose Cohen, whose best friend (and the love of her life) has abandoned her to marry a man, and Malke Shulman, whose father died mysteriously on his way to America. But there are obstacles ahead of them as difficult as what they’ve left behind. Medical exams (and demons) at Ellis Island. Corrupt officials, cruel mob bosses, murderers, poverty. The streets are far from paved with gold.
