NOVEMBER BOOK DISCUSSION
The choice of one of two books is offered as the topic of discussion as many will be busier than usual for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens (384 pages) is a well-written novel with a murder mystery, courtroom drama, and story of survival in the desolate marshlands of the North Carolina coast by an abandoned child, Kya Clark, known as the Marsh Girl. Watch for clues to the surprise ending.
The Moon is Down by John Steinbeck (144 pages) is a short, powerful novel set in a fictional, unnamed city that is invaded and occupied by an unnamed armed force during WWII. In a struggle of collaboration/resistance, Steinbeck illustrates that a controlling, unjust power cannot ultimately conquer those who value freedom and liberty.
Not all participants may have read the book before the discussion, but they come to learn from the various perspectives of those who have. Participants bring a dish to share at the pot-luck lunch served mid-way through the discussion.
There will not be a book discussion in December, but the group will meet on Monday, January 28th, to discuss Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by Irin Carmon & Shana Knizhnik.
