The April meeting of Northwest Mississippi Community College’s Reading Roundtable, made possible with funds from Sycamore Bank, will be held on Tuesday, April 29 at 2 p.m., in the R.C. Pugh Library on the Senatobia campus.
“My father, James Witherspoon, is a bigamist.” The first line of Tayari Jones’ book, Silver Sparrow, will wake a reader up.
The book jacket continues, “At the heart of it all are the two girls (Witherspoon’s daughters) whose lives are at stake—portrayed with raw authenticity as they seek love, demand attention, and try to imagine themselves as women. Women, other than their mothers.” Crystal Giles, technical services librarian will lead this discussion.
The purpose of the program is to provide a forum for lifelong learners to read and discuss a variety of books during the course of every semester. Librarians and faculty at Northwest will lead the discussions. Meetings will be held on the last Tuesday of each month.
Participants must fill out a registration form, and those wishing to purchase a copy of the book being discussed may do so for $5. Personal or library copies may also be used.
For more information or to register, contact Maggie Moran at (662) 562-3277 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
