One Amazing Thing by Chitra DivakaruniThe North Channel Book Club will host a book discussion of Chitra Divakaruni's novel, "One Amazing Thing," on Wednesday, Sept. 28, at 10 am as part of the inaugural Gulf Coast Reads program. 

Divakaruni's novel centers on nine survivors of a earthquake trapped in a tiny visa office.  With little food and less hope for escape, each person takes a turn relating "one amazing thing" from their life.  As different as each person, the stories are woven together with the struggle for survival following the earthquake.
