***Literally Awesome Readers: I will admit I made a serious schedule error. I thought I was off work this Wednesday for our meeting. But today I found out I have to work at 7pm. Oh no! Its too late to switch it so I just decided to reschedule our meeting to the following week. Same book, same place. Come join us even if you didn't finish or like the book. I value your time and interest & hope to see you soon!***
Let's try "The Enchantress of Florence," by Salman Rushdie. It's described as one of Rushdie's best novels and won the Booker prize. "The Enchantress of Florence is the story of a woman attempting to command her own destiny in a man's world. It is the story of two cities, unknown to each other, at the height of their powers — the hedonistic Mughal capital, in which the brilliant Akbar the Great wrestles daily with questions of belief, desire, and the treachery of his sons, and the equally sensual city of Florence during the High Renaissance, where Niccolo Machiavelli takes a starring role as he learns, the hard way, about the true brutality of power."
