An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until October 1, 2020
In Cormac McCarthy’s novel The Road (2006), a man and his young son walk down a US highway, trying to survive and find their moral bearings in an ash-covered country in which Rand McNally fold-up maps and brass sextants are irrelevant.
Join Elizabeth Crosby online to discuss a post-modern and ancient story about a country in ruins – its prophets, pilgrims, Adams and Eves, gardens, serpents, fowl of the air, fish of the sea, and the Incarnation of the Word. *
August 20 – October 1
Thursdays, 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.
We’ll read between 30-50 pages of the novel each week.
Also, survivors who resort to cannibalism. (See snakes. Cormac McCarthy is not for everyone.)
