Join us to discuss The Maze at Windermere by Gregory Blake Smith. A perennial source of fascination to physicists, philosophers, and poets is the nature of time. Does time progress along a straight line? Perhaps it ripples outward, like the rings on a tree trunk? Or maybe time is tiered, like an archaeological dig? The Maze at Windermere,  takes the archaeological view. In this enchanting novel, the present is but a thin layer atop a rich past. The novel interweaves five stories that take place in 2011, 1896, 1863, 1778, and 1692. All welcome! Beth El’s book club is jointly sponsored by the Library Committee, Men’s Club, and Sisterhood.
