Reading in the Hall Book Discussion @ Hall
This month we're reading and discussing The lost book of the Grail, or, A visitor's guide to Barchester Cathedral by Charlie Lovett.
"At the University of Barchester, where Arthur Prescott works as an English professor, his one respite is his time spent nestled in the Barchester Cathedral library, nurturing his secret obsession with the Holy Grail and researching his perennially unfinished guidebook to the medieval cathedral. When American Bethany Davis arrives in Barchester charged with the task of digitizing the library's manuscripts, Arthur's tranquility is broken. He sets out to thwart Bethany, only to find in her a kindred spirit with a similar love for knowledge and books-- and a fellow Grail fanatic. Joined in a quest to find the lost Book of Ewolda, the ancient manuscript telling the story of the cathedral's founder, the pair discover secrets about the cathedral, about the Grail, and about themselves.
Reading in the Hall Book Discussion is held at the William Hall Library on the 4th Wednesday of each month. A staff librarian leads the discussion.
