Event Description:

The library offers book clubs at different times of the day for lovers of books who would like to get together to discuss popular and thought-provoking titles. Both Book Clubs discuss the same book each month. Book Club books are available on the book club shelf or we can place a copy on hold from another library. They check out for 28 days.

The Library Book Club will discuss "The Bread of Angels: a journey to faith and love" by Stephanie Saldaña in April.

The Story:
A riveting memoir about one woman's journey into Syria under the Baathist regime and an unexpected love story between two strangers searching for meaning. When Stephanie Saldaña arrives in Damascus, she is running away from a broken heart and a haunted family history that she has crossed the world to escape. Yet as she moves into a tumbling Ottoman house in the heart of the Old City, she is unprepared for the complex world that awaits her: an ancient capital where Sunni and Shia Muslims, Christians, Alawites, Kurds, and Palestinian and Iraqi refugees share a fragile co-existence. What follows is a tender story of a woman falling in love: with God, with her own life, with a country on the brink of chaos, and with a man she knows she can never have. The Bread of Angels celebrates the hope that appears even in war, the surprising places we can call home, and the possibility of true love.
