Book Club

 

 

Enjoy reading, want to share your thoughts about books or just listen to other peoples opinions then why not join us.  Book club meets on the third Wednesday of every month at Lee Rosy’s café.  The books for the next few months are:-

 

Aug. 2013 – The Buddha in the Attic, Julie Otsuka.

 

Books to read are chosen by the group roughly every six months.  We try to choose books from various genres and times.  Have a book you think should be shared then come along and put it in the mix.

 

The Buddha in the Attic – Julie Otsuka

 

Julie Otsuka's The Buddha in the Attic, the follow-up to When the Emperor Was Divine was shortlisted for the 2011 National Book Award for Fiction and the 2011 Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and winner of the Pen Faulkner Award for Fiction 2012.

Between the first and second world wars a group of young, non-English-speaking Japanese women travelled by boat to America. They were picture brides, clutching photos of husbands-to-be whom they had yet to meet. Julie Otsuka tells their extraordinary, heartbreaking story in this spellbinding and poetic account of strangers lost and alone in a new and deeply foreign land.

    I would love to come along for the first time but I am going to be away. I haven't read this book but I like the sound of it. Perhaps next month?
