Time for a good novel! The Book of the Every Other Month Club will begin its new program year (our 33rd!) on Saturday, September 10 with a discussion of Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doerr.

Doerr is the author of All the light We Cannot See, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 2015 and a previous Book of the Every Other Month Club selection. We are excited to read his new novel, published in 2021.

Set in Constantinople in the fifteenth century, in a small town in present-day Idaho, and on an interstellar ship decades from now, Anthony Doerr’s gorgeous third novel is a triumph of imagination and compassion, a soaring story about children on the cusp of adulthood in worlds in peril, who find resilience, hope— and a book. In Cloud Cuckoo Land, Doerr has created a magnificent tapestry of times and places that reflects our vast interconnectedness—with other species, with each other, with those who lived before us, and with those who will be here after we’re gone. —Simon & Schuster.

We meet from 10:00 to 11:30 in the North Parlor, on the second Saturday of every other month from September through May. Have questions or need more information? Contact Janet Witkowski at janwit1978@gmail.com. We’d love to see you there!
