Morning Tea Book Club at Walkertown Reads Lila by Marilynne Robinson on January 12th, 11 am
January’s Morning Tea Book Club selection is Marilynne Robinson’s critically-acclaimed and 2014 National Book Award Finalist in Fiction, "Lila". Although less than 300 pages, "Lila" is a sweeping novel that explores the nature of humanity and faith through the eyes of a woman who is given a chance at a new beginning. Lila is an unwanted child of the Great Depression who never knew her parents. After years of surviving as a migrant drifter, a chance visit to a church in the fictional small town of Gilead, Iowa changes the entire course of her life.
Booklist’s Donna Seaman wrote that “Robinson has created a tour de force, an unforgettably dynamic odyssey, a passionate and learned moral and spiritual inquiry, a paean to the earth, and a witty and transcendent love story--all within a refulgent and resounding novel so beautifully precise and cadenced it wholly transfixes and transforms us.”
The Walkertown Library Morning Tea Book Club meets on Thursday, January 12th at 11:00 am. Tea and light refreshments will be served at the book discussion.
