Book Club

 

The Prince of Peace Book Club is combining the November and December meeting.  We will be meeting December 4 at 10 AM.  I will send you a link to the zoom meeting the week before the meeting.  If you have never attended a meeting, send me a note to add you to the distribution list.

An Unnecessary Woman by Rabih Alameddine is a portrait of an isolated woman with a dazzling mind as she comes to grips with getting old.  Aaliya lives alone in Beirut in an apartment she used to share with her husband.  Previously she ran a bookstore.  Now she stays at home.  Her life is pretty bare, mostly about books: reading constantly, then, once a year, translating a favorite volume in Arabic.

Out of her memories she paints a portrait of her life in Beirut and we come to understand her life in a meaningful and thoughtful way.
