October 2016 Book DiscussionsPosted: September 23, 2016
At 10:00 am on October 18, the Tuesday Morning Book Group will be discussing The Tilted World, a historical novel by Tom Franklin and his wife Beth Ann Fennelly. Set in a river town in Mississippi in the spring of 1927 as the river levels rise and levees upstream start failing; a tale of federal revenuers, a baby, and moonshiners. Here’s my recent review.
The Tuesday Evening Book Group will meet at 7:00 pm on October 25 to talk about Georgia, by Dawn Tripp. This is a biographical novel about Georgia O’Keeffe, her long, adventurous life, her art, and her relationship with her older husband, photographer Alfred Stieglitz. Read more here.
