Year of Wonders

In the acclaimed historical novel Year of Wonders: a Novel of the Plague, author Geraldine Brooks introduces us to housemaid Anna Frith and her remote village in England.  The year was 1666, when an infected bolt of cloth carried the plague from London to Anna's village of Eyam. Through the following year, illness, superstition and fear threaten to destroy the village, but for the young woman who becomes a reluctant heroine.

Copies of the book and audio are available in the library.

The discussion group will meet at noon on Friday, March 22, in Room 122.  Bring your lunch!
