The AAUW-IA’s eNetwork branch invites you to join us online at our first fall meeting on Thursday, September 27, at 7:30 p.m. Central Daylight Time for a discussion with author Mary Helen Stefaniak about the many stories behind her novel, The Cailiffs of Baghdad, Georgia, an AAUW ¡Adelante! Book of the Month Club selection. Whether you have read the novel or not, you will learn about things like white dirt, Milledgeville GA, 9th-century Baghdad, a one-woman doctor without borders, and perhaps the most famous of the African Muslims enslaved in the American South. And you don’t even have to leave home to attend.  Guests may join the online session at 7:15 using this link: https://zoom.us/j/2017201809
