Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
This is our official April discussion, where we will be discussing the book that we democratically selected as a group. This time we are reading "That They May Face the Rising Sun" by John McGahern.
Here is a brief synopsis from Amazon.com:
"Joe and Kate Ruttledge, have come to rural Ireland from London in search of a different life. In passages of beauty and truth, the drama of a year in their lives and those of the memorable characters that move about them unfolds through action, the rituals of work, religious observances and play. By the novel's close we feel that we have been introduced, with deceptive simplicity, to a complete representation of existence - an enclosed world has been transformed into an Everywhere."
Unfortunately, his selection seems to be unavailable on audio, free or otherwise.
Our location is TBD. We will see how Borders works out for us for our next couple of discussions and then make a decision as to where to meet.
