Hey there book clubbers! I’m super excited to announce our book for April!
When I was looking for books, this one really jumped out at me as something different and exciting…
For April, we will be reading The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker. Based in historical fiction and fantasy, this story tells the tale of a golem named Chava and a jinni named Ahmed who become unlikely friends in late 19th century New York City.
Published in 2013, this was Helene Wecker’s debut novel. My inner history nerd is looking forward to how these ancient supernatural creatures are assimilated into a well documented period of American history.
Our reading schedule will be as follows:
Week 1: Chapters 1 – 8
Week 2: Chapters 9 – 16
Week 3: Chapters 17 – 24
Week 4: Chapters 25 – 29 & Epilogue
As always, weekly discussion posts will be published on Sundays. For those who need ideas on discussion topics, discussion questions will be found on the No. 3 Primrose Place Facebook page!
You can pick your book up at Amazon, your local library, or local bookstore!
