Fourth Wednesday Book Club: Warlight
Wednesday, December 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us as we pick our books for 2021! The first half hour of our meeting will be to make our selections. After that we will discuss Warlight by Michael Ondaatje.
Follow the story of fourteen-year-old Nathaniel, and his older sister, Rachel. In 1945, just after World War II, they stay behind in London when their parents move to Singapore, leaving them in the care of a mysterious figure named The Moth. They suspect he might be a criminal, and they grow both more convinced and less concerned as they come to know his eccentric crew of friends. But are they really what and who they claim to be? A dozen years later, Nathaniel begins to uncover all that he didn’t know and understand in that time, and it is this journey–through facts, recollection, and imagination–that he narrates in this masterwork from one of the great writers of our time.
