Book Discussion Group
This is a lively and informal book lovers group that meets every first Monday of the month from 12 noon-1 PM in the St. Benedict conference room. The meeting this month will be on Monday, December 5. In early November we finished The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. For this month we started The Sultan and the Queen: The Untold Story of Elizabeth and Islam by Jerry Brotton. This is a fascinating history of how 16th century England, isolated by Rome because of the Reformation, reached out to the Ottoman Empire for trade and political alliance. Even if you have not read the book, please come and share your ideas and contributions for future selections. All are welcome and the hour passes quickly (and promptly!). For more info please email Bill Liesman.
