Adult Book Discussion

We read a different book every month and get together to discuss it.  Come join the fun of reading books you may never have picked up unless you have someone to discuss it with.

Michael Ondaatje, best-selling author of The English Patient, weaves a fictional tale set in the decade after World War II in his new novel Warlight.  Two teenagers are left in the care of a shadowy character named The Moth when their parents move to Singapore, and the events of the ensuing months and years read like a dark fairy tale.
