Snow Falling on Cedars

Snow Falling on Cedars

The featured book will be “Snow Falling on Cedars” by David Guterson.

The book, set on an island in the straits north of Washington state’s Puget Sound, a place where fisherman and berry farmers make up the island’s population.

The story, set in the 1950s, focuses on a murder trial, and touches on key themes such as racism and the internment camps of the 1950s as criminal suspicion surrounds a Japanese-American fisherman, a lifelong resident of the islands.

All are welcome to attend and participate in the discussion. Contact Carolyn Harrington for more information.
