Our open book club is for anyone who has read the book we select for discussion each month. No long term commitments necessary. The next book for discussion is: 

The Hare with Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal.

A The Hare with Amber Eyes is a stunningly original memoir spanning nearly two centuries. The 264 wood and ivory carvings, none of them larger than a matchbox: potter Edmund de Waal was entranced when he first encountered the collection in the Tokyo apartment of his great Uncle Iggie. Later, when Edmund inherited the 'netsuke', they unlocked a story far larger than he could ever have imagined...De Waal traces the network of a remarkable family against the backdrop of a tumultuous century and tells the story of a unique collection.  

Meeting on December 3rd at 7pm.
