We are happy to announce that our June book will be Daughters of Fortune by Isabel Allende, a special request from one of our very first members. This novel spans from Chile to northern California and navigates land, sea, love, and gold. Her search for the elusive Joaquín gradually turns into another kind of journey that transforms her over time, and what began as a search for love ends up as the conquest of personal freedom.  The meeting will be held in the Hagan Room at International House Davis. Refreshments will be served. Hope to see you there!  The book discussion will be held on Sunday June 25, 2017 from 2-4 pm.
