Join Reference Librarian Cathy Reid for a lively discussion about The Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks. This gripping historical novel is based on the true story of Eyam, the "Plague Village," in the rugged mountain spine of England. When bubonic plague comes to an isolated settlement of shepherds and miners a visionary young preacher convinces them to seal themselves off in a deadly quarantine to prevent the spread of the disease.
Our discussion leader will not be available to participate in this session of our book club. However, please feel free to join others from the group in our Main Library Gaier Room to discuss the book, if you wish.
