Fiction Book Club

Think of this as is your regular, old fiction book club. We try to focus on new fiction titles (new as in newly released in paperback, since we know that we're all on a budget!).

This month, we're reading Salt Houses by Hala Alyan.   As always, wine will be served.

On the eve of her daughter Alia's wedding, Salma reads the girl's future in a cup of coffee dregs. She sees an unsettled life for Alia and her children; she also sees travel and luck. While she chooses to keep her predictions to herself that day, they will all soon come to pass when the family is uprooted in the wake of the Six-Day War of 1967.


Lyrical and heartbreaking, Salt Houses follows three generations of a Palestinian family and asks us to confront that most devastating of all truths: you can't go home again.
