Book Club on October 22th

BookClub Oct2014 v2The 1st Book Club meeting was held on Wednesday, October 25th evening. The participants discussed the book "Yes, I would Love Another Glass of Tea" by Katherine Branning.

Branning's work comprised of a series of imaginary letters written to Lady Mary Montagu, whose famous Embassy Letters were written in 1716-1718 during her stay in Turkey as the wife of the English ambassador. Branning uses themes dear to Lady Mary, such as culture, art, religion, women and daily life, to reflect on those same topics as encountered during the author's past thirty years of travel in Turkey.
