The First Tuesday Book Club usually meets on the first Tuesday of each month but, because of the Independence Day holiday, the group will meet next on Tuesday, July 11th, from 6:30-8:00 pm to discuss Janet Wallach's Desert Queen: The Extraordinary Life of Gertrude Bell: Adventurer, Adviser to Kings, Ally of Lawrence of Arabia. In the years before World War I, Gertrude Bell traveled, explored, and mapped the Arab world. After the war, she played a major role in creating the modern Middle East. Wallach presents her achievements and personal heartaches in this well-regarded biography.
