The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
We started this year’s OCFPL Book Club with Paulo Coelho’s widely popular book The Alchemist. We enjoyed the story and the journey that took place. It was an adventure traveling with Santiago (The Boy) as he was going through both a spiritual and emotional journey. What started out as a quest to find treasure became the greatest quest of all. The gold and jewels may have been a reward but finding one’s self, destiny and fulfillment was the greatest treasure of them all. We enjoyed reading about the signs and importance they have in the book and share a few traditions, signs, and superstitions that we grew up knowing.
Overall, we enjoyed this book. Check it out here and embark on your own journey.
February’s book choice is A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. We will meet on Feb. 20th in RM N111 at 6pm.
