The Women’s Book Discussion Group will read “Lunch with Buddha” by Roland Merullo. Our first meeting to discuss this book will be at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 9, in the Conference Room.
Heartbreaking in places, hilarious in others, “Lunch with Buddha” takes its readers on a quintessentially American road trip across the Northwest. That outer journey, complete with good and bad meals, various outdoor adventures, and an amusing cast of quirky characters, mirrors a more interior journey — a quest for meaning in the hectic routine of modern life.
The reading schedule for “Lunch with Buddha” is as follows:
- Jan. 9 — Chapters 1-9
- Jan.16 — Chapters 10-16
- Jan. 23 — Chapters 17-24
- Jan. 30 — Chapters 25-32
- Feb. 6 — Chapters 33-42
