Faith & Fiction December Meeting

Faith & Fiction December Meeting

Tuesday  ·  December 19th  ·  7pm  ·  Parlor

We continue our discussion of works of fiction that reflect the challenges of immigrants or non-Christians assimilating into a largely Christian American culture. December’s meeting will focus on award-winning author Elizabeth Strout’s novel The Burgess Boys about a depressed former mill town in Maine with a substantial influx of Somali refugees. The plot is set in motion when a teenage boy throws a frozen pig’s head through the door of a local Somali mosque during Ramadan.

 

A limited number of books will be on reserve at Westwinds for our group. Please email me at laurawalkerdunn@gmail.com for more information if you are interested in attending this December meeting. Prior participation is not required. All are welcome.
