On Sunday May 5th & 12th at 9:30am in the PCLT Classroom, we will discuss the novel “Plainsong” by Kent Haruf.

In Plainsong, “Kent Haruf reveals a whole community as he interweaves the stories of a pregnant high school girl, a lonely teacher, a pair of boys abandoned by their mother, and a couple of crusty bachelor farmers. From simple elements, Haruf achieves a novel of wisdom and grace…a narrative that builds in strength and feeling until, as in a choral chant, the voices in the books surround, transport, and lift the reader off the ground.” From the citation for the National Book Award nomination.

All are welcome!, contact Jo Ann Currie or Mary Margaret MacMillan with questions.
