Book discussion at SV Library



The Sonoma Valley Library will host its next book discussion on Thursday, Sept. 25, 2 p.m. in the Library’s Forum Room.

The book to be discussed is The Cat’s Table by Michael Ondaatje

The Cat’s Table chronicles a young boy’s passage from Sri Lanka to London onboard the Oronsay, both as it unfolds and in hindsight.

Glancing off the author’s own biography, the story follows 11-year-old Michael as he immerses himself in the hidden corners and relationships of a temporary floating world, overcoming its physical boundaries with the expanse of his imagination. The boy’s companions at the so-called cat’s table, where the ship’s unconnected strays dine together, become his friends and teachers, each leading him closer to the key that unlocks the Oronsay’s mystery decades later.
