Next book choice for WOW Exchange book group

For our next book meeting, we are going to be reading "Year of Wonders" by Geraldine Brooks.

Geraldine Brooks is an Australian Pulitzer Prize winning author and journalist. Brooks is a former war correspondent for the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Washington Post, and bestselling author of the nonfiction Nine Parts of Desire. Many of you might have also heard of her through her second novel, "March," where she chronicles the war experiences of the March girls' absent father in Alcott's Little Women.

We'll be reading her first novel, Year of Wonders, which follows a young woman's battle to save her fellow villagers and her soul when the plague suddenly strikes the small British village of Eyam.
