Dear friends

The book we will discuss this month : The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco

The international best seller! A masterful gothic thriller set against the turbulence of medieval Italy.

The year is Protected content . Franciscans in a wealthy Italian abbey are suspected of heresy, and Brother William of Baskerville arrives to investigate. But his delicate mission is suddenly overshadowed by seven bizarre deaths that take place in seven days and nights of apocalyptic terror.

As Brother William goes about unraveling the mystery of what happens at the abbey by day and by night, listeners step into a brilliant re-creation of the 14th century, with its dark superstitions and wild prejudices, its hidden passions and sordid intrigues. Virtuoso storyteller Umberto Eco conjures up a gloriously rich portrait of this world with such grace, ease, wit, and love that you will become utterly intoxicated with the place and time.

Looking forward to having you all on board again next time, stay well until then and.. enjoy the reading !
