Here’s what the UUFSD book clubs are reading in April:
On Monday, April 8th, the group will be discussing The Line Becomes a River: Dispatches from the Border
by Francisco Cantú. This is both a lovely memoir and a compelling story about a young man who becomes a Border Patrol agent and what he experiences in that job.
On Thursday April 18th at 10am, we will be discussing Canada by Richard Ford, published in 2012. This is a haunting and elemental novel about the cataclysm that undoes one teenage boy’s family, and the stark and unforgiving landscape in which he attempts to find grace. Then fifteen-year-old Dell Parsons’ parents rob a bank, his sense of normal life is forever altered. In an instant, this private cataclysm drives his life into before and after, a threshold that can never be uncrossed.
