New members are welcome to join this on-going group any time. The group meets throughout the year, on the first Wednesday afternoon of each month to discuss a novel chosen by the group from several “100 Best American Novels” lists. Choices have included Moby Dick, The Great Gatsby, Native Son, The Grapes of Wrath, The Ambassadors and The Confessions of Nat Turner, and more recent novels by Annie Proulx and Jonathan Franzen. The April choice is Marilynne Robinson’s Gilead, and the May choice is Donna Tartt’s The Secret History. Discussions are informal and lively, with participants contributing background and historical and literary insights.

John McCausland has taught LINEC courses on the Bible, Chaucer, and the American novel. An Episcopal priest and one-time lawyer, he loves history, literature, theology, teaching, and learning.
