For the last five years LINECs offerings have included a popular American novel reading group. With this summer, we shift the focus of what someone characterized as “not a normal book group.” Going forward, we will select a book each month from Britain’s prestigious Booker Prize lists: works written in English and published in the UK or Ireland, formerly by Commonwealth authors but now open globally.

Join us for these informal, fun discussion as we read:
July – V. S. Naipaul’s A Bend in the River, the 1979 story of a merchant of Indian descent in mid-century post-colonial Africa.
August – Salmon Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children, a 1981 work set in India at the end of the Raj.

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.
