December title

Hi every one

just in case you missed the last meeting we will be reading The People of the Book by
Geraldine Brooks.

One of the earliest Jewish religious volumes to be illuminated with images, the Sarajevo Haggadah survived centuries of purges and wars thanks to people of all faiths who risked their lives to safeguard it. Geraldine Brooks, has turned its history into a rich, thrilling story that retraces its journey. In the hands of Hanna Heath, an impassioned rare-book expert restoring the manuscript in 1996 Sarajevo, it yields clues to its guardians and whereabouts: an insect wing, a wine stain, salt crystals, and a white hair. While readers experience crucial moments in the book's history through a series of fascinating, fleshed-out short stories, Hanna pursues its secrets scientifically, and finds that some interests will still risk everything in the name of protecting this treasure. (amazon review Mari Malcolm)

The next meeting will be on Monday the 6th of December at 7pm

Happy reading
