HESTIA BOOK CLUB

March Book: Like a Mule Bringing Ice Cream to the Sun by Sarah Lapido Manyika

Morayo Da Silva, a cosmopolitan Nigerian woman, lives in hip San Francisco. On the cusp of seventy-five, she is in good health and makes the most of it, enjoying road trips in her vintage Porsche, chatting to strangers, and recollecting characters from her favourite novels. Then she has a fall and her independence crumbles. Without the support of family, she relies on friends and chance encounters. As Morayo recounts her story, moving seamlessly between past and present, we meet Dawud, a charming Palestinian shopkeeper, Sage, a feisty, homeless Grateful Dead devotee, and Antonio, the poet whom Morayo desired more than her ambassador husband. 

We meet the first Wednesday of the month, September through June.

Our book club evenings go something like this:

7:00-7:30pm Connecting, time for drinks/food

7:30-8:30pm Book discussion

8:30-9:00pm Logistics (selecting the next book and planning the next meeting)

Join us for a fun evening!
