WBG Book Club: Classics (& Coming Classics)
We did it! We launched three new Book Clubs here at the Book Gallery - Ready (to Read); Matters (that Matter); and, Classics ( & Coming Classics). Each book club will meet once every six weeks from 5:00-7:30 pm at the Book Gallery.
C2 is for folks who want to read Classic Books but also want to suggest books that will become Classics! THE JUNE BOOK IS: The Known World by Edward James. Sign up today.
In one of the most acclaimed novels in recent memory, Edward P. Jones, two-time National Book Award finalist, tells the story of Henry Townsend, a black farmer and former slave who falls under the tutelage of William Robbins, the most powerful man in Manchester County, Virginia. Making certain he never circumvents the law, Townsend runs his affairs with unusual discipline.
