Capitol Reads Book Discussion Group Meeting
December's Capitol Read:
Pope Joan by Donna Woolfolk Cross
Denied the priesthood by society's rules, young Joan
seizes her opportunity to join a monastery when she assumes her
murdered brother's identity and takes the name John Anglicus. Putting
her brilliant mind to good use, she excels as a scholar and healer. Joan eventually finds her way to Rome, where the lures of passion and politics threaten to expose her secret. But Joan rises above even these obstacles to achieve the pinnacle of Catholic power--the Papacy.
The Book Discussion Group is open to all and free.
