St. James Book ClubbookClub

The St. James Book Club will meet November 17 at 5:00 p.m. in the Parlor. The group will discuss “Night Tiger” by Yangsze Choo, a fourth-generation Malaysian of Chinese descent. It is a sumptuous garden maze of a novel of myth, fantasy, and mystery that immerses readers in a complex, vanished world of Malaya (now Malaysia) of the 1930s. It contrasts ancient culture, myth, and Confucianism with the modern culture of Singapore.
Come join us for some lively discussion.
