THUR 1/17: SJC Book Club

1/17/19 - 7:00 PM - SJC Building

Please join the SJC Book Group at
SJC on Thursday, Jan. 17, at 7 p.m.
to discuss The Fish That Ate the
Whale: The Life and Times of
America's Banana King, by Rich
Cohen. Don't let the title deceive
you! This book is about the banana
business in America and Samuel
Zemurray, a Russian-born Jew who
emigrated to the United States in
1892, who not only became the "king" of the banana business, but he orchestrated the overthrow of Central American governments. This is a story most of us don't know and is told in a most engaging manner. Contact Enid Zafran at if you
plan to attend, so we know how many to expect.
