About the event

Our next book club selection is the novel "People of the Book" by Geraldine Brooks.

"People of the Book" is a captivating journey through centuries of history, culture, and the power of storytelling. Following the fictionalized journey of the Sarajevo Haggadah, an ancient Jewish manuscript, this novel will take us on a spellbinding adventure across continents and through time. As a rare book conservator, Hanna Heath is tasked with unlocking the secrets of the Haggadah, delving into its past to uncover the stories of the people who have safeguarded it through tumultuous epochs of human history. Through vividly drawn characters Brooks weaves a tapestry of narratives that span from medieval Spain to World War II Bosnia, illuminating the resilience of the human spirit and the enduring quest for knowledge and connection. "People of the Book" is a masterful blend of mystery, history, and literary exploration that will  inspire thought-provoking discussions about the intersections of faith, culture, and the enduring power of literature.

You are invited to discuss this fascinating book with us.

Attendance is free of charge. 

Feel free to come early with a bag lunch at 11:30 to schmooze and eat before the discussion begins.
