Reading Group

January 17 @ 6:00 pm

Exciting news! As per Bishop Wright, we are now able to have Book Club in the Parish Hall, provided that all in attendance have been fully vaccinated. If there is anyone who wants to attend but has not been vaccinated, please contact Jane Brubaker.


The Reading Group will meet on Monday, January 17, at 6 PM to discuss The Lincoln Highway: A Novel by Amor Towles.
 
Here’s a description of the book:

The bestselling author of A Gentleman in Moscow and Rules of Civility and master of absorbing, sophisticated fiction returns with a stylish and propulsive novel set in 1950s America.

In June, 1954, eighteen-year-old Emmett Watson is driven home to Nebraska by the warden of the juvenile work farm where he has just served fifteen months for involuntary manslaughter. His mother long gone, his father recently deceased, and the family farm foreclosed upon by the bank, Emmett’s intention is to pick up his eight-year-old brother, Billy, and head to California where they can start their lives anew. But when the warden drives away, Emmett discovers that two friends from the work farm have hidden themselves in the trunk of the warden’s car. Together, they have hatched an altogether different plan for Emmett’s future, one that will take them all on a fateful journey in the opposite direction—to the City of New York.

Spanning just ten days and told from multiple points of view, Towles’s third novel will satisfy fans of his multi-layered literary styling while providing them an array of new and richly imagined settings, characters, and themes.

Everyone’s invited! Please bring $5.00 to help off-set the cost of pizza and wine. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact Jane Brubaker (706-884-2838, janebrubaker@bellsouth.net).
