Friday, April 23 at 10:00 am on Zoom

Please join the WRJ/Sisterhood Book Club for fascinating reading and exciting discussions on Zoom. On Friday, April 23, at 10:00 am, we’ll discuss The Fountains of Silence by Carnegie Medal winning author, Ruta Sepetys. Goodreads writes, “Under the fascist dictatorship of General Francisco Franco, Spain is hiding a dark secret. Meanwhile, tourists and foreign businessmen flood into Spain under the welcoming promise of sunshine and wine. Among them is eighteen-year-old Daniel Matheson, the son of an oil tycoon, who arrives in Madrid with his parents hoping to connect with the country of his mother’s birth through the lens of his camera. Photography, and fate, introduce him to Ana, whose family’s interweaving obstacles reveal the lingering grasp of the Spanish Civil War, as well as chilling definitions of fortune and fear. Daniel’s photographs leave him with uncomfortable questions amidst shadows of danger. He is backed into a corner of difficult decisions to protect those he loves. Lives and hearts collide, revealing an incredibly dark side to the sunny Spanish city.”

Everyone is welcome to attend. For questions and the Zoom login information, please contact Susan Waterman at [email protected].
