EventKeeper : Tell a Friend
Wednesday Afternoon Book Group

Wednesday May 20, 2020
1:00 PM until 2:30 PM


Today we will be discussing WARLIGHT by Michael Ondaatje

About the book:

Just after World War II, 14-year-old Nathaniel and his older sister Rachel 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: men and women joined by a shared history of unspecified service during the war, all of whom seem, in some way, determined now to protect, and educate (in rather unusual ways) Rachel and Nathaniel. But are they really what and who they claim to be? And what does it mean when the siblings' mother returns after months of silence without their father, explaining nothing, excusing nothing? A dozen years later, Nathaniel begins to uncover all that he didn't know and understand in that time.

Books will be available to pick up at the Main Desk for one month prior to our meeting.  New members are always welcome!
