Historical Fiction Discussion, Tuesday, June 15, 4 pm

The Gift of Rain by Tan Twan Eng will be the book for the next  historical fiction discussion. Facilitated by Jim and Meg Schmidt, the series delves into the historical background and the novelist’s craft of a new title each month. This novel, set in 1939 on a Malayan island, tells the story of a 16 year old of British and Chinese heritage.  He becomes the disciple of a Japanese diplomat who teaches him aikido.  The tangle of wartime loyalties and deceits is poignantly told.
