Book Discussion Group

The Book Discussion Group is reading Apeirogon by Colum McCann, but we do not plan to meet again until fall and a date will be announced in August.  A brief summary of the book follows.
Apeirogon by Colum McCann: C.M writes with an amazing abundance of humanity as he describes the age-old story of inhumanity to man.  It is the story of a Palestinian man and an Israeli man who have both lost daughters to the violent conflict between the nations. They recognize the loss that connects them and employ storytelling in an attempt to use their grief as a weapon of peace. “McCann finds the emotional accuracy, the sensitivity and the beauty to tell the heartbreaking reality of life in Israel-Palestine, while allowing readers a glimmer of necessary hope.
