The Ginger Tree

January 16th, 2013 · No Comments · Book Group, Books, City Library, Events, Main Branch

This January the Brown Bag Book Club will be reading and discussing “The Ginger Tree” by Oswald Wynd. This is the story of a Scottish woman who sailed to China to marry her betrothed, then became involved in an adulterous affair with a Japanese nobleman. Abandoned by her peers, she learned to survive in Asia over a period of forty tumultuous years.  A bestseller in England, this bittersweet story of love and betrayal in the Far East is the source of the Masterpiece Theatre miniseries. This book is told in a journal or diary format.  So plan to join us at lunchtime on Tuesday January 29th from 12:15-1:30 to discuss and share this wonderful novel. For more information contact Information Dept. at 624-6550 ext. 319.
