Fourth Monday Book Club
Monday, February 24 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The West Cobb evening book discussion group meets on the fourth Monday each month. Newcomers are always welcome. The group reads and discusses a variety of works including fiction and non-fiction, a variety of genres, and a mix of cultures and time periods. This month we are reading Where the Line Bleeds by Jesmyn Ward.
The first novel from National Book Award winner Jesmyn Ward is a timeless Southern fable of brotherly love and familial conflict—“a lyrical yet clear-eyed portrait of a rural South and an African-American reality that are rarely depicted” (The Boston Globe). Where the Line Bleeds takes place over the course of a single, life-changing summer. It is a delicate and closely observed portrait of fraternal love and strife, of the relentless grind of poverty, of the toll of addiction on a family, and of the bonds that can sustain or torment us.
