The Golem and the JinniJoin the Georgetown Book Club as we discuss Helene Wecker's 2013 novel, The Golem and the Jinni.

In the novel, two supernatural beings--one from Jewish folklore and another from Arabic mythology--arrive in human form in New York City in 1899. As both struggle with their unusual natures and their experiences as immigrants, they develop a complicated yet powerful bond.
