"The Road" by Cormac McCarthy (Note New Location & Time)

  • Apr 8, 2013 · 7:00 PM

The Road is a 2006 novel by American writer Cormac McCarthy. It is a post-apocalyptic tale of a journey of a father and his young son over a period of several months, across a landscape blasted by an unspecified cataclysm that has destroyed most of civilization and, in the intervening years, almost all life on Earth. The novel was awarded the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction in 2006.

    Somehow I thought I could read the book AND babysit a 4 month old puppy. The answer is no, I can't do that.

    I would like to invite those group members who haven't been to one of our "in person" meetings yet (or been away for awhile) to come join us for a discussion of this book on April 8th. We would love to hear your opinion, whether good or bad. We're a very friendly group so you might come away with some new friends too.
