You’ve selected Richard Powers’ book “Bewilderment” as our next discussion book! There will be two reading sessions: November 3 and December 1, both from 7 -9 PM. Both discussions will be at Solomon’s Porch, likely up on the 3rd floor.
For the first session, read/listen to the first 101 pages (through the line, “You mean, like a video game?”). Then we’ll finish the book for our December discussion.
Bewilderment follows the story of astrobiologist Theo Byrne who searches for life throughout the cosmos while single-handedly raising his unusual nine-year-old, Robin, following the death of his wife. This intimate and timely novel allows readers an opportunity to reflect on all that is currently happening throughout our beautiful, imperiled planet Earth—and in our own lives.
