Benediction by Kent Haruf

Tuesday • March 3 • 1pm

Feed your body and your mind. Bring your lunch and join us on the first Tuesday of each month at 1pm to talk books at the Book Bites Book Club.

Weaving together characters' individual struggles and support of each other as they deal with impending death, loss, and strained relationships, Benediction captures the fullness of life by representing every stage of it, including its extinction, as well as the hopes and dreams that sustain us along the way. In it, Kent Haruf gives us his most indelible portrait of the small town and the humanity of its inhabitants yet.
