At 10:00, Wednesday morning, July 17, the book group will be discussing Adam Johnson’s book The Orphan Master’s Son. The publication has just won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, 2013. The book, set in North Korea, is about a young man who rises to become a threat to the dictator Kim Jong-il, and then tries to get his wife and step children out of the country.
The reading for August 21 is George Orwell’s 1984 – a novel about official deception, Big Brother and secret surveillance, manipulation of the past, public mind control, and newspeak.
Come and enjoy good conversation, free donuts, and coffee.
