Culture Club: Saturday, November 12, 2016

Our next Culture Club will meet on Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 6 PM at the home of one of our members.  We will discuss the book Cry, The Beloved Country by Alan Paton. All are welcome!

m-hsen-0618103

Cry, the Beloved Country was written before passage of a new law institutionalizing the apartheid political system in South Africa. The novel was published in 1948; apartheid became law later that same year.

From Goodreads:   Cry, the Beloved Country is the deeply moving story of the Zulu pastor Stephen Kumalo and his son, Absalom, set against the background of a land and a people riven by racial injustice. Remarkable for its lyricism, unforgettable for character and incident, Cry, the Beloved Country is a classic work of love and hope, courage and endurance, born of the dignity of man.
