Book Discussion Group
Join us on Tuesday, April 1st at 7p.m. to discuss the book:
Travels with Charley: In Search of America, John Steinbeck
"To hear the speech of the real America, to smell the grass and the tress, to see the colors and the light—these were John Steinbeck's goals as he set out, at the age of fifty-eight, to rediscover the country he had been writing about for so many years.
With Charley, his French poodle, Steinbeck drives the interstates and the country roads, dines with truckers, encounters bears at Yellowstone and old friends in San Francisco. And he reflects on the American character, racial hostility, on a particular form of American loneliness he finds almost everywhere, and on the unexpected kindness of strangers that is also a very real part of our national identity.”

Saints & Boxers, Gene Yang (Graphic Novel)
