Book Discussion Group
Northampton Area Public Library's book discussion group will be meeting on Wednesday, May 27th, at 6:30 PM. The book being discussed is In the Sanctuary of Outcasts by Neil White. If you would like to participate in the discussion, please call or stop by the library to get the book.
From the back of the book:
"Neil White wanted only the best for those he loved and was willing to go to any lengths to provide it--which is how he ended up in a federal prison in rural Louisiana, serving eighteen months for bank fraud. But it was no ordinary prison. The beautiful, isolated colony in Carville, Louisiana, was also home to the last people in the continental United States disfigured by leprosy--a small circle of outcasts who had forged a tenacious, clandestine communtiy, a fortress to repel the cruelty of the outside world. In this place rich with history, amid an unlikely mix of leprosy patients, nuns, and criminals, White's strange and compelling new life journey began."
