August's genre is classics, and we will be reading a NC Classic, Look Homeward, Angel by Thomas Wolfe. Our discussion leaders will be Steven and Sarah, and we will be meeting on the Durham side of town at Alivia's. As always, the Regulator in Durham gives a 10% discount to all book club titles - just let them know it's for book club.

Here is a link the book's Wikipedia page and Amazon page. See below for a blurb:

Look Homeward, Angel: A Story of the Buried Life is a 1929 novel by Thomas Wolfe. It is Wolfe's first novel, and is considered a highly autobiographical American Bildungsroman. The character of Eugene Gant is generally believed to be a depiction of Wolfe himself. The novel covers the span of time from Gant's birth to the age of 19. The setting is the fictional town and state of Altamont, Catawba, which is considered to be a not-so-subtle mirror of his hometown, Asheville, North Carolina. Playwright Ketti Frings wrote a theatrical adaptation of Wolf's work in a 1957 play of the same title.
