IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS & CORNELL NORCAL EVENTS

As Cornellians, we seek to bond with each other in good times and tough times. Unfortunately, with the outbreak of COVID-19, especially in the Bay Area, in-person group gatherings have become too much of a risk to the community.
As a result of the growing number of cases, we have decided to focus on keeping the Cornell NorCal community connected via virtual events in the meantime. We will keep this community up to date on any changes on upcoming events. We hope to see you healthy at an event in the near future.
If you have questions about the status of specific events, please check our website or email us at info@cornellnorcal.com.

Sincerely,

Cornell NorCal Board of Directors

"Nobody knows, nobody can ever know, not even in memory, because there are moments in time that are not knowable."

-Amitav Ghosh



Our book club focuses on reading contemporary novels from countries around the globe. Grab your cup of coffee or tea and join us on Zoom on August 24 at 7 p.m. to discuss our selection for August: The Shadow Lines, by Amitav Ghosh.

Opening in Calcutta in the 1960s, Amitav Ghosh's radiant second novel follows two families—one English, one Bengali—as their lives intertwine in tragic and comic ways. The narrator, Indian born and English educated, traces events back and forth in time, from the outbreak of World War II to the late twentieth century, through years of Bengali partition and violence, observing the ways in which political events invade private lives.

A Zoom link for the meeting will be sent out to participants before the meeting.
