Read this month’s chosen title and then come hang out with fellow book lovers to discuss the book with a librarian. We will meet in the Willow Room of Cameron Recreation Centre.
Our selection this month is A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra. "A novel of unflinching honesty, gutting humanity, haunting detail, and beautiful, raw hope dangling like a bare bright light in a basement. A haunting novel set in a nearly abandoned hospital in war-torn Chechnya that is both intimate and ambitious in scope. Eight-year-old Havaa, Akhmed, the neighbour who rescues her after her father's disappearance, and Sonia, the doctor who shelters her over 5 dramatic days in December 2004, must all reach back into their pasts to unravel the intricate mystery of coincidence, betrayal and forgiveness which unexpectedly binds them and decides their fate."
