Literary Circle - The Spy by Paulo Coehlo
In November, the Deercreek Book Club is reading an interesting book called, The Spy by Paulo Coelho. This is a novel about Mata Hari and is based on real events.
When Mata Hari arrived in Paris she was penniless. Within months, she was the most celebrated woman in the city.
As a dancer, she shocked and delighted audiences, as a courtesan, she bewitched the era's richest and most powerful men. But as paranoia consumed a country at war, Mata Hari's lifestyle brought her under suspicion. In 1917, she was arrested in her hotel room on the Champs-Elysees and accused of espionage. Told in her voice through her final letter, The Spy is the
unforgettable story of a woman who dared to defy convention and paid the ultimate price.
We will be discussing this book the 3rd week in November. The exact date and location are yet to be determined. If you are interested in attending
please contact Mary Louise Selzer, at MLSelzer@comcast.net or 363-1618.
