Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield will hold its next book discussion Sunday, June 14, 2009, in the church parlor following the 9:30 a.m. worship service (starting at approximately 11:00 a.m.).
The featured book will be “Snow Falling on Cedars” by David Guterson.
The book, set on an island in the straits north of Washington state’s Puget Sound, a place where fisherman and berry farmers make up the island’s population.
The story, set in the 1950s, focuses on a murder trial, and touches on key themes such as racism and the internment camps of the 1950s as criminal suspicion surrounds a Japanese-American fisherman, a lifelong resident of the islands.
All are welcome to attend and participate in the discussion. Contact Carolyn Harrington for more information.
