Reading Group at St. Mark's

  • St. Mark's Episcopal Church 207 N Greenwood St LaGrange, GA, 30240 United States (map)

The Reading Group will meet on Monday, August 17, at 6:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall to discuss Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee. A description of the book follows: “Maycomb, Alabama. Twenty-sixyear-old Jean Louise Finch—"Scout"—returns home from New York City to visit her aging father, Atticus. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights tensions and political turmoil that were transforming the South, Jean Louise's homecoming turns bittersweet when she learns disturbing truths about her close-knit family, the town, and the people dearest to her. Written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman imparts a fuller, richer understanding and appreciation of Harper Lee. Here is an unforgettable novel of wisdom, humanity, passion, humor, and effortless precision—a profoundly affecting work of art that is both wonderfully evocative of another era and relevant to our own times.” Pizza will be ordered and wine provided. Please bring $5.00 to offset the cost of food and drink.
