Book Club

Katie Harris has a knack for picking a great book! A leader of Gal’s Guide Book Club Katie will handpick a book that fits into our research theme for the month. Selections might be fiction, or they might be nonfiction.

We will meet on the last Thursday of every month at 8pm. Because of our wide reach, we’re still looking at using Zoom to meet.

We are a no-pressure book club, you don’t have to read the full book to participate. You do however have to sign up.

Gertrude Bell has been a favorite for many years. The biography “Queen of the Desert” was one of the most intriguing books I ever read, and I didn’t want it too end. She got very little credit for her role in redrawing Middle East maps after WWI, archeological discoveries, and diplomacy— being on friendly terms with key Middle East officials as well as the powerful British authorities.
