"There are men that will make you books, and turn them loose into the world, with as much dispatch as they would do a dish of fritters."

This month's selection is "Caleb's Crossing" by Geraldine Brooks. Summary: "Bethia Mayfield is a restless and curious young woman growing up in Martha's vineyard in the 1660s amid a small band of pioneering English Puritans. At age twelve, she meets Caleb, the young son of a chieftain, and the two forge a secret bond that draws each into the alien world of the other. Bethia's father is a Calvinist minister who seeks to convert the native Wampanoag, and Caleb becomes a prize in the contest between old ways and new, eventually becoming the first Native American graduate of Harvard College."

 Light refreshments will be served, all are welcome to attend.
