REMINDER: There is still time to read February's WELCA Book Club selection and join our discussion on February 6 at 7:00 p.m. February's book is The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway. The title character in Galloway's novel is a defiant young musician who decides to play his cello at the site of a mortar attack for 22 days, in memory of his fallen friends and neighbors. Drawn into the orbit of his music are 3 strangers, who, like the musician, are living like fugitives in their own homeland. The story of war torn Sarajevo during these 22 remarkable days is told through each of their eyes.
