Winter Book Series: Plainsong by Kent Haru
December 11 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
“Ambitious, but never seeming so, Kent Haruf reveals a whole community as he interweaves the stories of a pregnant high school girl, a lonely teacher, a pair of boys abandoned by their mother, and a couple of crusty bachelor farmers. From simple elements, Haruf achieves a novel of wisdom and grace – a narrative that builds in strength and feeling until, as in a choral chant, the voices in the book surround, transport, and lift the reader off the ground.” (National Book Award citation)
Our next book discussion will begin in November with monthly selections that include faith-intersecting topics and stories. Discussions will be from 5:30 to 6:30pm at Lakewood Panera (14701 Detroit Ave) to accommodate participants with ability to get dinner, snack or drink as desired or demanded by their schedule. The church will keep at least two books for each discussion that can be purchased or borrowed in advance. Discussions will be facilitated by Pastor Kelly.
