Book Discussion Group to talk about ‘Desert Queen’

By Staff | Oct 12, 2009

Readers are invited to discuss “Desert Queen: The extraordinary life of Gertrude Bell, adventurer, adviser to kings, ally of Lawrence of Arabia” by Janet Wallach, the focus of the Wednesday, Oct. 28 book discussion meeting at the Sanibel Public Library.

“Desert Queen” is the story of an adventurous woman who abandoned Victorian England, journeyed deep into the Middle East, and gained friendship and respect from Arab leaders.

The group discussion begins promptly at 2 p.m. in the Library ground floor meeting room across from the elevator (Meeting Room #4). Reference materials, which include reviews and an author biography, are located at the library. It is preferable to come having read the book to be able to join in the lively discussion, but all are welcome.

If you have questions, please call the Sanibel Public Library, located at 770 Dunlop Road, at 472-2483.
