This month's read is A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens.
Charles Dickens' classic tale follows a Frenchman from Paris, where he is released from a long imprisonment in the Bastille, to London where he finally meets the now-grown daughter he never knew. This intimate family drama plays out against the sweep of history, as France descends into the Revolution and the Reign of Terror. Read the book that has captivated audiences for well over a century, has been adapted to every possible medium, and which continues to influence culture today.
