Our August selection is Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks. Brooks is most known for her latest novel, People of the Book, but this was highly reviewed as well.
Set in the 17th century, the novel follows Anna Frith, a widow who works as a servant to the local vicar in a small English village. The plague has arrived in the village and now those who live there are faced with the decision, do they stay and help the sick or do they flee in an attempt to keep healthy? Brooks raises questions of morality and religion in this historically accurate work of fiction.
Join us on August 24th at 6:30 p.m. for a discussion. Books are available now at the Eldridge branch library.
