Read Around the World Book Club: Philippines

Smaller and smaller circles

Main Library – Wed, May 11 @ 7:00 pm. This month’s selection is Smaller and Smaller Circles by F.H. Batacan.  This harrowing mystery follows two priests on the hunt for a serial killer in a destitute, corrupt Manilla neighborhood built adjacent to a mouldering dump. It is a sensitive depiction of a time and place, and a fascinating story about the Catholic Church and its place in its devotees’ lives. 

The Read Around the World Book Club meets once a month to discuss titles from foreign locales.  All books are available from Maplewood Library or through the BCCLS consortium.
