Willow Wilson & The Butterfly
I have read one of this year's Silicon Valley Reads books, The Butterfly Mosque, and was
intrigued by the book and about the author, Willow Wilson. She is
a young woman, about our children's age, who grew up in Boulder,
Colorado in a non religious family. She searched for spiritual
meaning in her life and became a Muslim. This book is the story
of that time in her life, her move to Egypt and her eventual marriage
to an Egyptian Muslim. The library has lots of copies and it is a
pretty quick read.
Willow Wilson is speaking
at the Campbell library on Thursday, April 26th. I plan to go and
realized that we have no meeting on the regular day, as some of us will
be at Ruth's. Going to hear the author can be a "substitute"
meeting event for April. If people want we can get something to
eat in nearby downtown Campbell after the library program. I
thought of a Middle Eastern restaurant but didn't find one nearby.
If you want to know more
about the reading program and events, go to
www.siliconvalleyreads.org I have gone to see a couple of the
films at the Evergreen Library and enjoyed them.
