Getting there
234 Loyola Ave., New Orleans, LA

Let's meet at Pythian Market to discuss Moloka'i by Alan Brennert. The market has plenty of food and drink options for whatever suits you. Bring suggestions to read for the next meeting! Book description: Rachel Kalama, a spirited seven-year-old Hawaiian girl, dreams of visiting far-off lands like her father, a merchant seaman. Then one day a rose-colored mark appears on her skin, and those dreams are stolen from her. Taken from her home and family, Rachel is sent to Kalaupapa, the quarantined leprosy settlement on the island of Moloka'i. Here her life is supposed to end---but instead she discovers it is only just beginning.
