About the event
Be apart of our monthly Community Book Club at Marc of Healing, 541 Berkley Street in Berkley, as we discuss the book "The Devil and Miss Prym" by Paulo Coelho.
It's a story about: A community divided by greed, cowardice, and fear. A man haunted by the ghost of a painful past. A young woman in search of happiness. Seven days, a short period during which good and evil will wage a decisive battle, and each character will decide on which of the two sides they belong. The small village of Viscos is the setting for this disturbing fight. With the arrival of a foreigner, the entire town becomes an accomplice in a perverse plot that will forever mark the history of its inhabitants.
The foreigner has traveled from far away and needs to find the answer to a question that torments him: Are human beings, in essence, good or evil? At once an evocative novel and a suspenseful page-turner, The Devil and Miss Prym captures one moment in our eternal struggle for self-knowledge, asking a question that all of us have stopped to reflect on at some point: What is the essence of the human being?
A donation is appreciated for refreshments and fun. Even if you haven't read the book, we still would love for you to participate. At the end of the night, we all put ideas of a book in a hat and pick next months book. This is a fun social group and we look forward to you joining us! We have found a local bookstore called Footprints Bookshop in New Bedford that you can order the book and have it delivered to your house or you can pick it up.
