Join our discussion of Jana Bibi’s Excellent Fortunes, by Betsy Woodman. Janet Laird's life changed the day she inherited her grandfather's house in a faraway Indian hill station. Ignoring her son's argument, she moves to Hamara Nagar. Just as she’s settling in, Jana Bibi (as she comes to be known) finds out that the town is in danger of being drowned by a government dam. Jana is enlisted to help put it on the map. Hoping to attract tourists with promises of good things to come, she stacks her deck of cards, readies her fine-feathered assistant—and Jana Bibi's Excellent Fortunes is born. Light refreshments are provided. Click on the book to the left for more information.
