Books & Brew: Not Your Mother's Book Club (Cagney's)

  • The Horizon Center / Shelby Senior Services 1504 S Harrison St Shelbyville, IN, 46176 United States (map)

This is a community for younger adults, 20s-30s, and the young at heart. We meet once a month to discuss books, films, and other "hot topics" at Cagney's Pizza King. 

Copies of the book are located in the Book Club Display to the right of the main desk in the library. In March, we will be discussing THE POISONWOOD BIBLE by Barbara Kingsolver.

The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it — from garden seeds to Scripture — is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is a suspenseful epic of one family’s tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa...

 

Zachary Balgeman, Assistant Department Head of Adult Services, will lead the discussion. Questions? (317) 398-7121 or zbalgeman@sscpl.lib.in.us
