November, 2010: And She Was by Cindi Dyson

(Book #7) In November, we read And She Was by Cindi Dyson. The Talking Heads song (of the same name) is still on my phone from when I downloaded it to play for everyone when Marcia hosted. Marcia served a delicious salmon to fit the Alaskan fishing theme of the book– thankfully she did not follow the first peoples’ theme which would have had her serving us fingers from corpses!

We enjoyed a discussion of whether the song and book title leave off a last word as one of the characters suggests (And she was dead.) or if the title is just as it sounds. The book was intriguing for the historical context and the first peoples aspect but it wasn’t a favorite for the group.
