West University Book Group-April 6

cutting for stonePlease join us to discuss Cutting for Stone, by Abraham Verghese.  

Wednesday, April 6, at 11 a.m.

“A marvel of a first novel. Verghese’s generosity of spirit is beautifully embodied in this gripping family saga that brings mid-century Ethiopia to vivid life. The practice of medicine is like a spiritual calling in this book, and the unforgettable people at its center bring passion and nobility—not to mention humor and humility—to the ancient art, while living an unforgettable story of love and betrayal and forgiveness. It’s wonderful.” —Ann Packer
