Book Discussion Group — April 10

Join us next month at BAIN’s Book Club meeting for a lively and thought-provoking evening!

Our discussion will center on the book Of Mice and Men. (Please note that we have replaced the previously announced title (The Luminaries) on account of that book’s length. We hope this decision does not inconvenience anyone.)

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck (ca. 112 pages) is a classic must read, “the tragic story of the complex bond between two migrant laborers in Central California. They are George Milton and Lennie Small, itinerant ranch hands who dream of one day owning a small farm. George acts as a father figure to Lennie, who is a very large, simple-minded man, calming him and helping to rein in his immense physical strength.”

The book is available electronically, as always.
