Our book this month, They know not what they do by Finnish author Jussi Valtonen, was a bit controversial! Straddling the US and Finland, the story confronted traditional themes like family connection and parenting, ethical dilemmas involving animal testing and market power and some futuristic ideas around how technology and pharma are impacting our lives and how they are marketed to us. Although not a favourite, it kept us all talking candidly and we all agreed we learnt something new.
The groups three-word summaries are very telling this month: "children, parents, bad" or " Finland, America, black".
Plenty of room for more participants for our next meeting on Zoom where we embark on a memoir; Educated by Tara Westover.
Readily available in most book stores. Join in a lively discussion with your fellow book club Members!
