We’ll be reading “This Tender Land” by William Kent Krueger. “In the summer of 1932, on the banks of Minnesota’s Gilead River, Odie O’Banion is an orphan confined to the Lincoln Indian Training School, a pitiless place where his lively nature earns him the superintendent’s wrath. Forced to flee after committing a terrible crime, he & his brother, Albert, their best friend, Mose & a brokenhearted little girl named Emmy steal away in a canoe, heading for the mighty Mississippi & a place to call their own.
Over the course of one summer, these four orphans journey into the unknown & cross paths with others who are adrift, from struggling farmers & traveling faith healers to displaced families & lost souls of all kinds. With the feel of a modern classic, This Tender Land is an enthralling, big-hearted epic that shows how the magnificent American landscape connects us all, haunts our dreams & makes us whole.” We hope that you will join us for some exciting conversation, fellowship & dessert.
