We’ve read and discussed Dara Horn’s “All Other Nights” and “The World To Come”.  “People Love Dead Jews” (230 pages + ten reading group questions) is Horn’s latest.  From the back cover, 'Dara Horn is often asked by major publications to write on subjects related to Jewish culture - and increasingly in response to recent waves of deadly antisemitic attacks.  Horn was troubled to realize what all of these assignments had in common: she was being asked to write about dead Jews, never about living ones.'  This book is one of the New York Times 100 Notable Books of 2021.
