Welcoming library members to our monthly book club! Connect with avid readers, discuss bestselling books from our library collection and deepen your engagement with books, stories, and people from across cultures and backgrounds.
This month's pick is The Covenant of Water by Abraham Verghese.
Spanning the years 1900 to 1977, The Covenant of Water is set in Kerala, on South India’s Malabar Coast, and follows three generations of a family that suffers a peculiar affliction: in every generation, at least one person dies by drowning—and in Kerala, water is everywhere. The family is part of a Christian community that traces itself to the time of the apostles, but times are shifting, and the matriarch of this family, known as Big Ammachi—literally “Big Mother”—will witness unthinkable changes at home and at large over the span of her extraordinary life.
