The regular book club group has spun off a sub-group to finish Amitav Ghosh's "Ibis" trilogy with the final book. "Flood of Fire".  It's not necessary to have read the first two books if you would like to join in. High seriousness and low humour drive Ghosh’s fictional account of events in the years before the opium wars.

With all the verve of the first two novels in the trilogy, Flood of Fire completes Ghosh’s unprecedented reenvisioning of the nineteenth-century war on drugs. With remarkable historic vision and a vibrant cast of characters, Ghosh brings the Opium Wars to bear on the contemporary moment with the storytelling that has charmed readers around the world.

The first novel in the Ibis Trilogy, Sea of Poppies, was short-listed for the Man Booker Prize, and Ghosh was a finalist for the 2015 Man Booker International Prize.  Club members, alumni, students, parents and their guests are invited to join in.
