The Lincoln Public Library hosts a book discussiongroup that meets on the last Thursday o feach month at 6:30 PM in the Program Room. All are welcome to attend. On October 30, we will be discussing Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver.
Flight Behavior transfixes from its opening scene, when a young woman's narrow experience of life is thrown wide with the force of a raging fire. In the lyrical language of her native Appalachia, Barbara Kingsolver bares the rich, tarnished humanity of her novel's inhabitants and unearths the modern complexities of rural existence. Characters and reader alike are quickly carried beyond familiar territory here, into the unsettled ground of science, faith, and everyday truces between reason and conviction.
