Discuss! The Contemporary Fiction Book Club
February 13, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Join us for a new book group at the Main Library. We meet every 2nd Wednesday of the month. Discuss! focuses on topical, thought-provoking contemporary fiction.
The February selection is Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward. In Jesmyn Ward’s first novel since her National Book Award-winning Salvage the Bones, this singular American writer brings the archetypal road novel into rural twenty-first-century America. Drawing on Morrison and Faulkner, The Odyssey and the Old Testament, Ward gives us an epochal story, a journey through Mississippi’s past and present that is both an intimate portrait of a family and an epic tale of hope and struggle.
