The Poisonwood Bible -- Barbara Kingsolver

Bringing it back to our roots!  We will meet at the Boiler Room, where we will eat pizza, drink some beer and discuss the Poisonwood Bible.  Here's a summary of the book:

"In 1959, Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist, takes his four young daughters, his wife, and his mission to the Belgian Congo -- a place, he is sure, where he can save needy souls. But the seeds they plant bloom in tragic ways within this complex culture. Set against one of the most dramatic political events of the twentieth century -- the Congo's fight for independence from Belgium and its devastating consequences -- here is New York Times-bestselling author Barbara Kingslover's beautiful, heartbreaking, and unforgettable epic that chronicles the disintegration of family and a nation."
