WIRT: Beans and Compasses

The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman.This complicated fantasy is the first in the His Dark Materials trilogy. I’m listening to the audiobook (again!) and it’s among the best with a full cast of performers and narration by the author.

The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver. (SK, LH)A story of friendship, family, loss and love told in a down-home, lyrical language. Looking forward to the book discussion!
