       Leader: John McCausland

This is an on-going group meeting through the year on the first Wednesday afternoon of each month to discuss a novel chosen by the group from several “100 Best” lists. New members are welcome to join at any time. The group’s reading choices have included classics like Moby Dick and The Great Gatsby, and more recent novels like Joan Didion’s Play It as It Lays and James Baldwin’s Another Country. Discussion is lively and informal, with the facilitator and group members contributing background, historical and literary insights.  

The novel, The Separate Peace by John Knowles, should be read before the April meeting; and Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer by the May class.

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