January 23 At the Edge of the Orchard (Tracy Chevalier) Mimi B
“With impeccable research and flawless prose, Chevalier perfectly conjures the grandeur of the pristine Wild West… and the everyday adventurers—male and female—who were bold enough or foolish enough to be drawn to the unknown.” Johnny Appleseed plays a major part in this raw family saga set in the mid 1800’s. [Sorry, no book set]
February 27 Small Blessings (Martha Woodroof) Fern T
Tom Putnam, English professor in a sleepy college town, spends his days browsing the Shakespeare shelves at the campus bookstore, managing his department's oddball faculty, and caring for his wife Marjory - until an unexpected letter, a new hire at the bookstore, and a dinner party herald changes on the horizon. “A heartwarming story with a charmingly imperfect cast of characters to cheer for.”[Book set at January meeting]
March 27 The Nightingale (Kristin Hannah) Linda S
Reunited when the elder's husband is sent to fight in World War II, French sisters Vianne and Isabelle find their bond as well as their respective beliefs tested by a world that changes in horrific ways. An Everett Public Library “Everett Reads” selection.
April 24 Daher’s Vineyard / Tent of Nations: My Father's Dream (Daoud Nassar) Judy K
Palestinian Christian Daoud Nassar’s family memoir is both a testimony to the power of nonviolence, faith, and perseverance, and a tribute to love of land and family. This personal narrative becomes a window into the complex relationships in Palestine / Israel today and a glimpse into the possibilities of persistent grace and patience. You may have heard Doaud Nassar speak here at First Presbyterian Church.
[Jim and Judy Kutz will provide copies of the 66-page book at the March meeting.]
Open dates for your ideas: May 22, June 26, July 24, August 28, September 25, October 23.
