January Book Club Dinner and Discussion

Our couples book club convened Sunday night for dinner and discussion.

We read Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
In her memoir, Hirsi Ali recounts her transformation from what she terms, "the world
of faith to the world of reason". She describes her early childhood and family struggles with civil unrest, exile and injustice to reaching adulthood and her stand against her Islamic upbringing.

Our wonderful hosts prepared a northern African meal of couscous and chicken with vegetables.

Steamy and hot on a cold Michigan night.

Our hosts have a wonderful collection of blue plates, many of which were obtained on visits to family in England and Scotland.

Our next read is The Help, by Kathryn Stockett
