The Club has been having a wonderful experience reading books on important social issues, followed by deep dialogues.
By News Desk
Beginning with Caste: The Origins of our Discontent by Isabelle Wilkerson, followed by Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates, these two important non-fiction reads led into The Covenant of Water by Abraham Verghese. Discussions on this rich novel were enjoyed over two meetings.
Their next deep dive read is the 2023 Pulitzer Prize Winning book Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver. This is a powerful, thought-provoking novel that explores, as one critic put it, “the maligned and forgotten poor of Southern Appalachia, as we read about the abuse, the foster care system, back breaking labor, and the disdain with which these people are treated.”
Join The Meaningful Conversations Book Club of Pasadena and be part of an elevated conversation that will leave a lasting impact. Let’s explore the depths of Demon Copperhead and discover the resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity.
