International Book Club Meeting: The High Mountains of Portugal by Yann Martel
Jun 3 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join us for a discussion of The High Mountains of Portugal by Yann Martel   In Lisbon in 1904, a young man named Tomas discovers an old journal.  It hints at the existence of an extraordinary artifact that – if he can find it – would redefine history.  Traveling in one of Europe’s earliest automobiles, he sets out in search of this strange treasure.  Part quest, part ghost story, part contemporary fable – offers a haunting exploration of great love and great loss.  Filled with tenderness, humor, and endless surprise, it takes the reader on a road trip through Portugal in the last century – and through the human soul.
