Please join us for a book discussion of Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks on Wednesday, August 4, at 5:00 PM. When an infected bolt of cloth carries plague from London to an isolated village, a housemaid named Anna Frith emerges as an unlikely heroine and healer. Through Anna’s eyes we follow the story of the fateful year of 1666, as she and her fellow villagers confront the spread of disease and superstition. As death reaches into every household and villagers turn from prayers to murderous witch-hunting, Anna must find the strength to confront the disintegration of her community and the lure of illicit love.*
The group will meet outside of the library, weather permitting, or in the community room. There are several copies of the book on hold at the library available for cardholders to check out.
