The Alchemist is the story of Santiago, a sheepherder, who is in search of a treasure. Santiago travels from his Andalusian Hills to Egypt following the omens and fulfilling his Personal Legend. This book may seem a little obvious or simple, but I think it brings up many questions about how we live our life. Have we given up on our dreams? Are we settling? Or are we striving to make our dreams come true? We had a very good conversation on the book sharing many personal storied and frankly we probably could have talked much longer.
We concluded the evening by getting the book for next month, The Wilderness: a Novel by Samantha Harvey.
Next month we are supposed to bring suggestions for the following two months. Do you have any suggestions?
