Brown Bag Lunch Bunch
Join Librarian Sylvia Savage for a discussion of 'Cloud Atlas', by David Mitchell, on Wednesday, January 9 at 12 Noon in the Lamb Room. Light refreshments will be served. Bring a brown bag lunch for a heartier meal.
A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan’s California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified “dinery server” on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilization -- the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other’s echoes down the corridor of history, and their destinies are changed in ways great and small.
