Book Club Meeting - State of Wonder

State of Wonder by Anne Patch
Award-winning, New York Times bestsellingauthor Ann Patchett returns with a provocative andassured novel of morality and miracles, science and sacrifice set in the Amazonrainforest. Infusing the narrative with the same ingenuity and emotionalurgency that pervaded her acclaimed previous novels Bel Canto, Taft, Run, The Magician’s Assistant, and ThePatron Saint of Liars, Patchett delivers anenthrallingly innovative tale of aspiration, exploration, and attachment in State of Wonder—a gripping adventurestory and a profound look at the difficult choices we make in the name ofdiscovery and love.

Everyone is welcome to join the book club meeting at anytime if a book we are reading interests you.  The meeting room at the library can accommodate up to 12 people. We just ask that you have read the book to attend.  At the end of each meeting we will have a brief round table to discuss any interesting books that people are reading and would like to recommend to the group.  On the NSSC discussion board under the topic Books any NSSC member encouraged to post books that they would like to read in the upcoming months. Please provide Title, Author and a brief summary.
