Thursday Evening Book Discussions
Fall Series: Survival StoriesThe human capacity for survival is amazing. Much literature is devoted to survival stories…men, women and even children beating the odds to make it through impossible situations against improbable odds. Sometimes people act with nobility, sometimes they do not. This fall we explore several tales of survival, both fiction and non-fiction.

Tonight's selection: Lord of the Flies by William Golding
The classic novel of survival on a desert island. If you read this in school, read it again for a different perspective; this story of a group of boys who must choose humanity or living as animals is as relevant today as it was when published in 1954.

Tonight's Selection: Carry the One by Carol Anshaw
Following a shocking accident, three siblings and their friends move through 25 years of life in this story, showing how one life affects another, and how people who thrive and those who self-destruct are closer to each other than we might expect. One of the siblings explores her sexual orientation and seeks to find satisfying love and family life.

Thursday Evening Book Discussions
Spring Series: Africa -- Colonialism & BeyondThe history of Africa has been overshadowed over the last 200 years by the European colonization that dominated all parts of the continent. This is a huge story, and one that is often not very well understood by Americans. We take a very brief look at the experience of Africa from the perspective of colonialism and its effect on blacks and whites.

Toight's selection: The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
In 1959 an American missionary and his family move to the Belgian Congo. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is an epic of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.

He moves in to share a Brooklyn apartment with his older brother, Tyler and Tyler’s wife, Beth.

Toight's selection: ~~Things Fall Apart by Chinue Achebe
One of Achebe's many achievements in this acclaimed novel is his unsentimental rendering of Nigerian tribal life before and after the coming of colonialism. Achebe sketches a world in which violence, war, and suffering exist, but are balanced by a strong sense of tradition, ritual, and social coherence.

Toight's selection: Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight by Alexandra Fuller
This is an intensely moving journey through a white African girl's childhood. Fuller was brought up in Africa during the Rhodesian civil war (1971-1979), a world where children over five learned how to load a rifle, clean all the guns in the house, and shoot-to-kill. The narrative focuses on the wartime relationships between blacks and whites through a child's watchful eyes.
