Library group will discuss ‘Submission’

The Jamestown Philomenian Library’s book group will meet on Tuesday, Sept. 17, to discuss Amy Waldman’s novel, “The Submission.” The book was named best book of the month in August 2011 by Amazon.com. The novel is about a Muslim architect who wins a blind contest to design a Ground Zero memorial in New York City. Waldman, a former bureau chief for the New York Times, explores a diversity of viewpoints around this fictional event, bringing in politicians, businessmen, journalists, activists and normal people who get caught up in the controversy.
