The book study group will resume meeting on Monday, October 8, at 6:00 p.m. in the Footitt conference room.  All are welcome.  We will discuss “A Thousand Acres,” by Jane Smiley.  This book was published in 1991 and was awarded a Pulitzer Prize.  It is the fictional story of an Iowa farm family set in the late 70s and early 80s.  It has been compared to Shakespeare’s “King Lear,” because the family patriarch decides to divide the family farm up between the siblings while he is alive–and that turns the family upside down.  Join us for what should be a fascinating discussion.
