Booker and Beyond Book Club

contributed by Dorothy Yuan

Eighteen of us gathered for an interesting discussion of the book selection of the month: “Pachinko”.  The discussion extended beyond the book content to discrimination within and between nationalities as well as the influence of the intrinsic characteristics usually associated with different peoples.

If you happen upon a book that you think maybe of interest to the group please send it to me ( and I will add it to the list of candidates to be voted on by the group.

The next meeting of the Club is scheduled for December 12, when we will discuss the interesting novel “Home Fire” by Kamila Shamsie.  Discussion will be led by Sara Case.
