ACDL Book Group: Geneva Session #2

ACDL Book Group: Geneva Session #2 In-Person

This session will feature a discussion of Pull of the Stars by Emma Donoghue.

"In an Ireland doubly ravaged by war and disease, Nurse Julia Power works at an understaffed hospital in the city center, where expectant mothers who have come down with the terrible new Flu are quarantined together. Into Julia's regimented world step two outsiders—Doctor Kathleen Lynn, a rumoured Rebel on the run from the police, and a young volunteer helper, Bridie Sweeney.

In the darkness and intensity of this tiny ward, over three days, these women change each other's lives in unexpected ways. They lose patients to this baffling pandemic, but they also shepherd new life into a fearful world. With tireless tenderness and humanity, carers and mothers alike somehow do their impossible work."

You may pick up the book for this group any time in April, or when you attend the March session. Please register in order to receive the Zoom Details or join us in person at the Geneva Branch.
