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.
