Join us for the May virtual book club where we will discuss The Pull of the Stars by Emma Donoghue 

In 1918 Dublin, in an understaffed maternity ward, the lives of nurse Julia Power, doctor Kathleen Lynn, and volunteer Bridie Sweeney come together. Set against the backdrop of twin catastrophes of the Great Flu Pandemic and World War I, the novel follows these three women over the course of three days in a story of how hope can persevere against all odds. 

A presentation of historical medical texts from the Becker Medical Library will precede the discussion. 

Free and open to all, registration required.
