Jan 15, 7pm - "Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness"-­A. Fuller

For our January meet-up, "Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness" by Alexandra Fuller.

Overview
A story of survival and war, love and madness, loyalty and forgiveness, Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness is an intimate exploration of Fuller’s parents and of the price of being possessed by Africa’s uncompromising, fertile, death-dealing land. We follow Tim and Nicola Fuller hopscotching the continent, restlessly trying to establish a home. War, hardship, and tragedy follow the family even as Nicola fights to hold on to her children, her land, her sanity. But just when it seems that Nicola has been broken by the continent she loves, it is the African earth that revives and nurtures her. Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness is Fuller at her very best.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
