Reading the World Book Club

Grab a book and be ready for an adventure! Reading the World book group will meet again on Wednesday September 14th at 1 PM. The book this time is The Sand Fish, by Maha Gargash, a story set 1950s, in and around Dubai – though you’ll quickly find yourself transported to what feels like a much earlier point in history.  This is a story about arranged marriages, long desert journeys on foot, and sea voyages on creaking wooden vessels. And, it’s the story of one woman, determined to escape the boundaries placed on her by brother and husband – and by the ancient stones and village isolation  that defined her childhood. Will Noora be able to find her way out of a life that is crushing her spirit? Pick up The Sand Fish and join the lively conversation via Zoom. Contact Fr Bruce (bgray@hfec.org) to get the online information or look for Katie, Emily, Brandy, or Cathy on Sunday morning. All are welcome!
