The Cherrydale Library Book Club: "The Island of Missing Trees"
We're a volunteer-led Zoom book club focused on fiction and nonfiction titles. New members are always welcome.
We are reading:
- Jan/Feb 27: "Team of Rivals: the Political Genuis of Abraham Lincoln" by Doris Kearns Goodwin
- Mar 27: "The Island of Missing Trees" by Elif Shafak
"A rich, magical new book on belonging and identity, love and trauma, nature and renewal. A moving, beautifully written and delicately constructed story of love, division, transcendence, history and eco-consciousness, The Island of Missing Trees is Elif Shafak’s best work yet" -- Goodreads
"The Island of Missing Trees isn’t just a cleverly constructed novel; it’s explicitly about the way stories are constructed, the way meaning is created, and the way devotion persists."--The Washington Post
- April/May 22: “Talking to Strangers” by Malcom Gladwell
