The Great Beginnings Book Club meets the first and third Tuesday of every month at 7:30 pm.
While our meeting room is closed, we are holding virtual meetings via Zoom. Don’t worry if meetings are too frequent for you to finish each book; we would be thrilled to see you at whatever meetings work for your schedule. Book selections are posted at least several weeks in advance to give you a chance to focus on specific selections.
Moderated by John Donaldson.
New members are always welcome!
Our March 16th meeting features Beloved by Toni Morrison.
This novel won the Pulitzer Prize in 1988 for its unforgettable combination of the visionary power of legend and the unassailable truth of history into a single, enduring work portraying the cost and scars of American slavery. The protagonist, Sethe, has long been haunted by the burdens of the past and the loss of her baby whose only marker is a tombstone engraved “Beloved”. When a young woman arrives calling herself Beloved, Sethe’s terrible past once again comes to the forefront. Be aware, this novel can get quite intense.
Copies of Beloved will be reserved at Moffat Library between February 23rd and March 16th. You can also obtain a copy on your own at the links below. Note that some titles may not be available in every format. Please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are having difficulty getting a copy.
This program will be run virtually via Zoom. A link with instructions on accessing the meeting will be e-mailed to registrants the day before the program. Again, if you encounter any difficulty or have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com!
