AFTERWORD ~ September 200816. Ann came up with the idea of writing about their travels, but I don't know who came up with the book's title. Pomegranates relate to the myth about Demeter's daughter Persephone, who ate three pomegranate seeds. Sue and Ann wore those glass pomegranate necklaces, and they ate seeds from the pomegranate Sue brought from the hotel (pp. 78 and 84). Have you ever tasted pomegranate seeds ?
17. Can you come up with a question for this Jeopardy! answer (p. 281)?
"Sue Monk Kidd's debut novel is about these insects."18. Have you read either of Sue's novels?
19. How did you feel about Traveling with Pomegranates, once you had finished?
20. Did the book leave any loose ends for you? Were you left wondering about anything?
