February Book Club Meeting

The next meeting for the MCL Book Club will be on Wednesday, February 18 at 10 AM. We will be discussing Burial Rites by Hannah Kent.

This literary debut is “a retelling of real-life events from 1828 Iceland, when Agnes Magnusdottir and two others are convicted and sentenced to death in a brutal double murder thought to have been motivated by greed and jealousy. As Iceland’s primitive prison system is ill equipped to house death row inmates, a local farm family is prevailed upon to board Agnes until the date of her execution.” -From Library Journal
