In November, our discussions will revolve around Pearl S. Buck's Kinfolk. In today's world, our discussions are oversaturated with voices promoting their agenda and picketing the others'.
Kinfolk was published the year the Second World War ended. It explores a Chinese American family's search for identity in a world ravaged by Axis versus Allies. Sometimes we shy away from books that seem out-of-date. Turning the pages of Kinfolk, readers can be assured that date of publication and relevancy share no correlation.
We are fractured. We need groups, labels, tribes, parties, gates and borders to define who we are and who we aren't. Why?
Join the Kinfolk conversation. Tickets are $20. Open to the public. Tuesday, Nov. 7 at the San Marco Books & More located in historic San Marco Square in Jacksonville, Florida. Doors open at 6:30pm. For more information call 904-396-7597.
