For January Book Discussion, we will be reading and talking about In The Midst of Winter by worldwide bestselling author Isabel Allende. This is a sweeping novel about three very different people who are brought together in a mesmerizing story that journeys from present day Brooklyn to Guatemala in the recent past to 1970s Chile and Brazil. The story begins with a minor traffic accident which becomes the catalyst for an unexpected and moving love story between two people who thought they were deep in to the winter of their lives. Discussion on this book will be held on Monday, January 28 at 6:30pm and Wednesday, January 30 at 1:30pm. If you cannot make it, please make use of our online discussion blog at kplbookclub.blogspot.com. Everyone is welcome!
