Any adult in the McDonald community can join for a casual yet lively book discussion on the first Thurs of each month. Read a great novel and get together with adults to eat, drink and discuss—what's not to like?!
In May we'll be reading Jhumpa Lahiri's The Lowland, a National Book Award Finalist and shortlisted for the 2013 Man Booker Prize. Moving from the 1960s to the present, and from India to America and across generations, The Lowland is a family saga steeped in history: the story of two very different brothers bound by tragedy, a brilliant woman haunted by her past, a country torn apart by revolution, and a love that endures long past death.
Didn't get to finish the book? No worries - come anyway! If you like, bring wine or some munchies to share.
When: Thursday, May 1, 7:15pm
Where: Kristi Gilbert's house (RSVP to Janna below to get the address)
The Book: The Lowland, by Jhumpa Lahiri
Check the book out from the Seattle Public Library—or buy it on Amazon via the blue McDonald Amazon link on the McDonald PTA homepage and 4% of your purchase goes to the IS Fund!
