Book Club - "The Grapes of Wrath" (by John Steinbeck)
Join us for our next book club meeting on Thursday, August 31, - we'll discuss "The Grapes of Wrath" (by John Steinbeck) . American Library welcomes you to join us for discussions around American classic novels. Book Clubs meet weekly, on Thursdays. We always welcome new members =) Join us for our next book club meeting on Thursday, August 31, - we'll discuss "The Grapes of Wrath" (by John Steinbeck) Language: English =) Summary: "First published in 1939, Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize winning epic of the Great Depression chronicles the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s and tells the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joads, driven from their homestead and forced to travel west to the promised land of California. Out of their trials and their repeated collisions against the hard realities of an America divided into haves and have-nots evolves a drama that is intensely human yet majestic in its scale and moral vision, elemental yet plainspoken, tragic but ultimately stirring in its human dignity. A portrait of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless, of one man’s fierce reaction to injustice, and of one woman’s stoical strength, the novel captures the horrors of the Great Depression and probes the very nature of equality and justice in America."

Book Club is a place where we'd like to hear YOUR opinion about the book, which is not easy if you don't read it =) WHEN: Thursday (August, 31) 17:00 - 19:00 WHERE: American Library Kyiv (Kyiv, Voloska Street, 8\5) Enter: Free Facebook event here!
