WRJ Book Club – People of the Book 
Friday, March 24 at 10:00 am 

Please join the WRJ/Sisterhood Book Club on Zoom for fascinating reading and interesting discussions. On Friday, March 24, we will discuss People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks. Amazon writes, “Inspired by a true story, People of the Book is a novel of sweeping historical grandeur and intimate emotional intensity by an acclaimed and beloved author. Called ‘a tour de force’ by the San Francisco Chronicle, this ambitious, electrifying work traces the harrowing journey of the famed Sarajevo Haggadah, a beautifully illuminated Hebrew manuscript created in fifteenth-century Spain. When it falls to Hanna Heath, an Australian rare-book expert, to conserve this priceless work, the series of tiny artifacts she discovers in its ancient binding—an insect wing fragment, wine stains, salt crystals, a white hair—only begin to unlock its deep mysteries and unexpectedly plunges Hanna into the intrigues of fine art forgers and ultranationalist fanatics.”
