November Pageturners

The Pageturners Library Book Club will be meeting in the community room on November 24th at 10:15am to discuss John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath. The discussion will also be available on Zoom, and a recording will be available after the event with closed captioning. Masks will be required to attend the program in person.

The Grapes of Wrath is the best-known novel by John Steinbeck, published in 1939. It won the National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize for fiction, and it was cited prominently when Steinbeck was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1962.

Set during the Great Depression, the novel focuses on the Joads, a poor family of tenant farmers driven from their Oklahoma home by drought, economic hardship, agricultural industry changes, and bank foreclosures forcing tenant farmers out of work. Due to their nearly hopeless situation, and in part because they are trapped in the Dust Bowl, the Joads set out for California along with thousands of other “Okies” seeking jobs, land, dignity, and a future.

Pageturners began meeting over a decade ago and meets the fourth Wednesday of every month at 10:15 in the Community Room. The next few month’s selections include: January 26th- “Faithful and Virtuous Night” by Louise Glück, February 23rd- “The Nickel Boys” by Colson Whitehead, and March 23rd- “Less” by Andrew Sean Greer.For more information: JD Smithson, 208-769-2315 ext 455., [email protected]
