Brown Bag Books – Maud’s Line by Margaret Verble
Date(s) - 12/05/2017
12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The December BBB selection is “Maud’s Line” (F) by Margaret Verble. “Maud is refreshingly open and honest about her own sexuality though conscious of her place as a woman in a sexist society, always careful not to insult the intelligence or manhood of her male friends and relations. Verble writes in a simple style that matches the hardscrabble setting and plainspoken characters. Verble, herself a member of the Cherokee Nation, tells a compelling story peopled with flawed yet sympathetic characters, sharing insights into Cherokee society on the parcels of land allotted to them after the Trail of Tears.” (Kirkus) This debut novel Twas a finalist for the Pulitzer, and reminds us of Erdrich and Cather. Please join us on 12/5 in the Fireside Room to discuss this remarkable book.
The Brown Bag Books group meets year-round, except in July and August. Many attendees bring their lunches, and everyone brings a sense of humor. Monthly sessions are always lively and enjoyable.
Books chosen by the group for discussion are usually listed in the Order of Service and the Bulletin, as well as on the UUCPA website.
