Friday Book Group: “Midnight’s Children”
Decorah Public Library staff are hosting six book discussions in January. The groups are open to the public and newcomers are encouraged to attend. Anyone interested should call the library at 382-3717 to learn more or to reserve a book. Zoom links are available on the Library’s website or you can email email@example.com to be added to any of the groups’ email distribution lists. Funds for multiple copy sets were generously provided by Friends of Decorah Public Library.
The Friday Book Group will meet via Zoom Fri. Jan 20 at 2:00 p.m. to discuss Salman Rushdie’s “Midnight’s Children.” Saleem Sinai is born at the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947, the very moment of India’s independence, and he grows up to learn the ominous consequences of this coincidence: his every act is mirrored and magnified in events that sway the course of national affairs. Perhaps most remarkable are the telepathic powers linking him with India’s 1,000 other “midnight’s children,” all born in that initial hour and endowed with magical gifts.
For more information, contact Tricia Crary (Friday Book Group), Zach Row-Heyveld (Cookbook Book Group) or Kristin Torresdal (Happy Hour, History, and Speculative Fiction Book Groups) at 563-382-3717.
