Event Details

Join us to discuss a great classic of world literature! For this month, we'll be reading The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck. This gorgeous novel, set in agrarian China, tells the poignant tale of a Chinese farmer, Wang Lung, and his family, who work the land. Lush and rich in its descriptions of Chinese life at the turn of the century, it demonstrates the corrupting power of wealth and the profound bond between humans and the life-giving nature of earth.
