Book Discussion Group

The next NMCC book discussion will be held on Tuesday, May 26th at 7:00 p.m. The book is a fictionalized version of Jesus’ 40 days of fasting in the wilderness after his baptism. Several other characters are with Him in the desert wilderness and their stories complement (or contrast) his experience. Jim Crace (an agnostic) is the author, and the title is “Quarantine” (how appropriate). Crace won a Whitbread award as the 1998 novel of the year, and the book was a finalist for the Booker Prize. It is a quick 243-page read. The San Francisco Chronicle called “Quarantine,” “A brilliantly unusual, entertaining, and profound book.” You are invited to read and join us or just listen in as it is discussed on May 26. Shortly before the meeting, The Zoom link information will be sent to all interested participants. Contact Peter Meier with any questions, peterm190@yahoo.com.
