The list of books to be discussed for the remainder of 2020 is somewhat in flux because of the current health situation, but the tentative list follows. As always, we will meet the second Monday of each month at 2 pm. Watch for changes here on the website and also in your email. Comments are always welcome.
We missed the discussion of Sapiens that many of you were looking forward to. Depending on how the Zoom meeting is received, we may want to schedule a meeting to discuss it. Let firstname.lastname@example.org know how you feel about it.
Next Year in Havana — After the death of her beloved grandmother, a Cuban-American woman travels to Havana, where she discovers the roots of her identity–and unearths a family secret hidden since the revolution… Arriving in Havana, Marisol comes face-to-face with the contrast of Cuba’s tropical, timeless beauty and its perilous political climate. When more family history comes to light and Marisol finds herself attracted to a man with secrets of his own, she’ll need the lessons of her grandmother’s past to help her understand the true meaning of courage.
