Latest book discussed at the Melville Book Group

As always, it was a lively discussion about today’s book, Zabelle by Nancy Kricorian. We had 3 new participants; I hope they come back again. And we were missing a few of our regulars.

It was an interesting story about an immigrant family and piqued my interest about the Armenian massacre of 1915 – 1916. I did a little research online and shared it with the group. If you are interested in reading the book go to http://alpha3.suffolk.lib.ny.us/search~S23/t?SEARCH=zabelle in the catalog to request a copy. There was a lot of discussion about families, relationships and what it must have been like coming to the United States.

Book groups amaze me. Everyone there is an avid reader but it quickly becomes apparent that it is more than just reading the book, sharing your thoughts is just as important.

Here’s to more books and more book discussions.
