Some fifteen of us gathered for a discussion of the book: Pearl, by Mary Gordon suggested by Linda Ewald. The discussion elicited many interesting aspects and hidden meanings, not all of which can be gleaned by a first reading, allowing us to fully appreciate the value of such a meeting.

The next meeting is scheduled for  February 13, when we will go over the book: Lincoln in the Bardo, by George Saunders.  Discussion to be led by Bobbie McCuskey.

Sara Case led off a spirited dialogue on the book Home Fires by the nineteen attendees in our latest meeting.  All agreed that the evocative novel addressing contemporary societal struggles, structured on the ancient Greek tragedy, Antigone, was an excellent choice.

We look forward to reading the next book, chosen by the group, Pearl, written by Mary Gordon, with discussion to be led by Linda Ewald on Tuesday, January 9th.
