May 16 2013 Meetup: Whose Names are Unknown by Sanora Babb

We had a great discussion of Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal.  This is a humorous, irreverent, but at times thoughtful and philosophical speculation on the 30 years of Christ's life that are unaccounted for in the Bible or historical documents.  We had a nice time in spite of buckets of rain and an interminable tornado watch! 

Next month will feature Whose Names are Unknown.  Sanora Babb’s long-hidden novel tells of the High Plains farmers who fled drought and dust storms during the Great Depression. Written with empathy for the farmers’ plight, this powerful narrative is based upon the author’s firsthand experience. Babb submitted the manuscript for this book to Random House for consideration in 1939. Editor Bennett Cerf planned to publish this “exceptionally fine” novel but when John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath swept the nation, Cerf explained that the market could not support two books on the subject.

Come join us at The Rathskeller on May 16!
