Mostly Literary: Gilead
Monday, July 13th @ 6:30 p.m. Hayward Main Library, 835 C St. at Mission Blvd., Hayward, CA. 94541. We will be discussing the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Gilead, by Marilynne Robinson. From the author of the bestselling novel Housekeeping, Gilead is an intimate tale of three generations, from the Civil War to the 20th century: a story about fathers and sons and the spiritual battles that still rage at America' s heart. In the words of Kirkus Reviews, it is a novel "...as big as a nation, as quiet as thought, and moving as prayer. Matchless and towering.” Discussion facilitated by [email protected], 510-881-7700.
