The bookclub will meet on Thursday, January 3, at 7pm to discuss The Camel Bookmobile by Masha Hamilton. Everyone is welcome to join the discussion, at the Pioneer Bookshop or on this blog.
A novel based on a real camel bookmobile. Fiona does not understand the people she seeks to help. And in the impoverished small community of Mididima, she finds herself caught in the middle of a volatile local struggle when the bookmobile's presence sparks a dangerous feud between the proponents of modernization and those who fear the loss of traditional ways. .
