Get ready for the next meeting of the THELMA Book Club on Monday, August 7 at 5:30 pm! Our book choice for Monday, August 7 is Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doerr. You do not need to have the book read. Books are available at the front desk of THELMA. Join the THELMA Book Club! It’s free and open to the public!

About the book: Cloud Cuckoo Land follows five characters whose stories, despite spanning nearly six centuries, are bound together by their mutual love for a single book. Twelve-year-old Anna, an orphan, lives inside the formidable walls of Constantinople in a house of women who make their living embroidering the robes of priests. Restless, insatiably curious, Anna learns to read, and in this ancient city, famous for its libraries, she finds a codex containing the story of Aethon, which she reads to her ailing sister as the walls of the only place she has known are bombarded in the great siege of Constantinople. Outside the walls is Omeir, a village boy, miles from home, conscripted with his beloved oxen into the invading army. Soon, their paths will cross.
