Nov 2018 Fiction: "People of the Book" by Geraldine Brooks
This month we will be reading and (after a pot-luck dinner) discussing "People of the Book" by Geraldine Brooks Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0143115006/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=0143115006&linkCode=as2&tag=fcmeetup-20 Amazon Description: Inspired by a true story, People of the Book is a novel of sweeping historical grandeur and intimate emotional intensity by an acclaimed and beloved author. Called "a tour de force"by the San Francisco Chronicle, this ambitious, electrifying work traces the harrowing journey of the famed Sarajevo Haggadah, a beautifully illuminated Hebrew manuscript created in fifteenth-century Spain. When it falls to Hanna Heath, an Australian rare-book expert, to conserve this priceless work, the series of tiny artifacts she discovers in its ancient binding-an insect wing fragment, wine stains, salt crystals, a white hair-only begin to unlock its deep mysteries and unexpectedly plunges Hanna into the intrigues of fine art forgers and ultra-nationalist fanatics. DETAILS ABOUT OUR MEETING: We begin each meeting with a pot-luck dinner. At the conclusion of the discussion, we will elect a fiction book to discuss at the January 2019 meetup. The candidate book titles will be posted a couple of weeks before the meeting.
