Ivan Doig - Sweet Thunder

Aug 21 2014 8:00 pm

Brilliantly capturing an America roaring into a new age, Sweet Thunder is another great tale from a classic American novelist. Amid the clatter of typewriters, the rumble of the printing presses, and a cast of unforgettable characters, Morrie puts his gift for word-slinging to work. As he pursues victory for the miners, he discovers that he is enmeshed in a deeply personal battle as well-- the struggle to win lasting love for himself.

Aug 25 2014 8:00 pm

On a secluded, flowery street in Sri Lanka, on the eve of civil war, an ethnically diverse group of families are brought into conflict by the prejudices of the greater world.  On the day the Herath family moves in, Sal Mal Lane is still a quiet street, disturbed only by the cries of the children whose triumphs and tragedies sustain the families that live there. As the neighbors adapt to the newcomers in different ways, the children fill their days with cricket matches, romantic crushes, and small rivalries.  But the tremors of civil war are mounting, and the conflict begins to engulf them all.

Join Jane in the den for a lively discussion.
