Members Book Club: “The Exiles”

Visitors Center
Friday, September 16, 6pm

An unwed mother recently released from Newgate Prison. A young English midwife transported for stealing one silver spoon. The orphaned daughter of an aboriginal chieftain. These three improbable characters meet in Christina Baker Kline’s novel The Exiles. Set in an early 19th century Australian penal colony, this story explores female friendship, overcoming adversity and reclaiming lost legacies (400 pages). See the complete 2022 reading list.
