Decorah Area Chamber of Commerce - Event Information
Friday Book Group
Community Event Art Performances & Education Calendar
The Friday Book Group will meet on the 2nd floor of the library to discuss Emma Donoghue’s “The Wonder.” The Irish Midlands, 1859. An English nurse, Lib Wright, is summoned to a tiny village to observe what some are claiming as a medical anomaly or a miracle—a girl said to have survived without food for months. Tourists have flocked to the cabin of eleven-year-old Anna O’Donnell, and a journalist has come down to cover the sensation. “The Wonder” is a tale of two strangers who transform each other’s lives, a psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil.
