We are so fortunate to have a guest moderator, who will be leading the discussion of Stoner, by John Williams, at our Face to Face meeting in the Community Room at CapRadio Studios on Wednesday, September 11th at 6:30pm. Please sign up to join us as Hellen Lee, from the English Department at Sacramento State has graciously agreed to lead the conversation while I am away. Hellen is well qualified, and will I'm sure be a welcome new voice for the meeting.
The book, which is enjoying a Renaissance of sorts is a novel about a young man who leaves his farm in Missouri to become a literature professor at the start of the 20th century. The author, John Williams, won the National Book award for his book Augustus. Stoner has been called "the perfect novel" because of the well told story and the beautiful writing. I hope you enjoy it, and enjoy your guest moderator. I look forward to seeing you in October.
As always, thanks for reading.
