Our book group meets on March 29 at 1pm. This month we are discussing “A Thousand Acres” by Jane Smiley
PULITZER PRIZE WINNER • NATIONAL BESTSELLER • A “powerful and poignant” twentieth-century reimagining of Shakespeare’s King Lear (The New York Times Book Review) that takes on themes of truth, justice, love, and pride—and centers on a wealthy Iowa farmer who decides to divide his farm between his three daughters.
When the youngest daughter objects, she is cut out of his will. This sets off a chain of events that brings dark truths to light and explodes long-suppressed emotions. Ambitiously conceived and stunningly written, A Thousand Acres reveals the beautiful yet treacherous topography of humanity.
