Reminder: The QUIET Book Club is Wednesday Evening…


…at 8 p.m. EST. We’ll be discussing the fabulous “People of the Book” by Geraldine Brooks.

    I liked the book and truly enjoyed reading it. The cutting back-and-forth between Hanna’s present and the past represented by the specimens taken from the Haggadah was unusual in that the timeline progressed from most recent to most distant. The author’s descriptions of historic settings and behavior seemed accurate and added to the plot.
