Baldwin Boettcher Evening Book Club

The Bonesetter's DaughterJoin us for a discussion of The Bonesetter's Daughter by Amy Tan, on Monday, May 13, 6:30 pm.  Set in contemporary San Francisco and in a Chinese village where Peking Man is being unearthed, The Bonesetter's Daughter is an excavation of the human spirit -- the past, its deepest wounds, its most profound hopes.  The story conjures the pain of broken dreams, the power of myths, and the strength of love that enable us to recover in memory what we have lost in grief.

Over the course of one fog-shrouded year, between one season of falling stars and the next, a mother and a daughter find what they share in their bones through heredity, history, and inexpressible qualities of love.
