Our next book conversation: Where the Crawdads Sing? by Delia Owens.

Where the Crawdads Sing is immersed in the natural world. The story is set in the 1950s and revolves around a young woman named Kya Clark, who is from extremely rural North Carolina. Known by others as the Marsh Girl, she lives alone in nature—but the draw of other people, and specifically love, brings her into contact with the greater world. This novel has a mystery at its core, but it can be read on a variety of levels. There is great nature writing; there is coming of age; and there is literature. Crawdads is a story lovingly told—one that takes its time in developing its characters and setting, and in developing the story. You’ll want to relax and take your time as well, and when you’re done you will want to talk about it with another reader. (Chris Schluep , Amazon Book Review)

Welcome: The St. Anne's Book Group is open to everyone: members of our community, friends, and newcomers who don't know anything about church. We talk about the book! We like to start with an overview by one of our participants who has read the book. We are very fortunate to have welcomed authors to join us as we talk about their book. It's great if you have read the book; you're also welcome if you have not read the book and want to know more about it. We like to make faith connections to the themes of the book - where possible. 

We meet at 7:00 p.m. for a pot luck supper, followed by a discussion beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Future Books: We have occasional brainstorming sessions to choose our future books. We do read widely!

You might have questions, especially if you're joining us for the first time. Please contact me if you would like more information.
