Prairie Lights

Our next book club will take place at Prairie Lights at 7pm August 15th. Our book will be Grief is the Thing with Feathers by young English writer, Max Porter, a deeply thoughtful book in vignettes, about a young academic, whose wife dies in a freak accident. The family's tragedy– there are two small boys –seems insoluble until it is visited by a mysterious talking crow who has learning to impart on the grieving family. Very short. Deeply moving. Poetic on every page. Not sad.

"One of the only accurate representations of grief I have ever found in literature." —Sara Manguso
