The bookclub will continue to discussion of Jonathan Odell’s ‘The View from Delphi’. The View from Delphi, which deals with the struggle for equality in pre-civil rights Mississippi, his home state, and The Healing, which explores the subversive role that narrative plays in the healing of an oppressed people. His presentation focuses on growing up in a small Mississippi town on the white side of the color line and returning as an adult to understand what life was like on the black side of that line. The deep knowledge and understanding that came from that investigation is at the heart of his novels.
The November book selection will be Sports and All That Jazz — the Percy Hughes Story by Jim Swanson. The Book Club typically meets the first Tuesday each month at 6:30 p.m. at Hosmer Library. October and November schedules and locations have been adjusted to accomidate voting and community events If you are interested in attending please contact info@buildingbridgesMPLS.org
