**POSTPONED** Read and discuss 'Little Bee' by Chris Cleave


This book has gotten awesome reviews and is listed as a book club "must read".  The museum (one of my favorites :))  will have extended hours that day; however, if you all would like to meet at another location, please let me know. 

Also, bring your favorite titles to the discussion so we can decide on what to read next.

Happy Reading!!

Editorial Reviews

Caroline Elkins…immensely readable and moving …While the pretext of Little Bee initially seems contrived —two strangers, a British woman and a Nigerian girl, meet on a lonely African beach and become inextricably bound through the horror imprinted on their encounter—its impact is hardly shallow. Rather than focusing on postcolonial guilt or African angst, Cleave uses his emotionally charged narrative to challenge his readers' conceptions of civility, of ethical choice.—The New York TimesSarah L. Courteau…

Little Bee will blow you away…[Cleave] has carved two indelible characters whose choices in even the most straitened circumstances permit them dignity—if they are willing to sacrifice for it. Little Bee is the best kind of political novel: You're almost entirely unaware of its politics because the book doesn't deal in abstractions but in human beings.—The Washington Post

      Hey Lela, I want to read this book and like the idea of a book group if we can pull one together. Let's think about this.
