Feb Meeting

Consolations of the ForestFor our book club meeting on Fri 13 Feb, we read Consolations of the Forest by Sylvain Tesson.

Jacket Synopsis:
Sylvain Tesson, found a radical solution to his need for freedom, one as ancient as the experiences of the hermits of old Russia: he decided to lock himself alone in a cabin in the middle taiga, on the shores of Baikal, for six months. Noting carefully his impressions of the silence, Sylvain Tesson shares with us an extraordinary experience.
