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!


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.

Please email Sue at or Marnie at for location.
