Welcome to InterNations Dallas Global Minds Book Club. We are people from around the world, reading books from around the world.

Our group typically meets on the first Sunday of every month at 14:00, HOWEVER, ****THIS MONTH WE WILL MEET FROM 1:00-3:00 pm****. See information below about our selected book.

Our Sunday, May 6, Protected content is "An Unnecessary Woman". (Taken from goodreads.com) - One of Beirut’s most celebrated voices, Rabih Alameddine shows his readers a breathtaking portrait of a reclusive woman’s late-life crisis. Readers will follow Aaliya’s digressive mind as it ricochets across visions of past and present Beirut. Insightful musings on literature, philosophy, and art are invaded by memories of the Lebanese Civil War and Aaliya’s volatile past. As she tries to overcome her aging body and spontaneous emotional upwellings, Aaliya is faced with an unthinkable disaster that threatens to shatter the little life she has left.
