For the October meeting, Charlie Hill has chosen Cannery Row, by John Steinbeck. Published in 1945, the story is set during the Great Depression. It takes place in what Steinbeck named “Cannery Row” but is really a street in Monterey, California, that was lined with sardine fisheries and canneries — a once-thriving industry. The characters interact with one another, and we are introduced to their lives — with depth, pathos and the picaresque.

The next two meetings of the Book Group that follow will be on November 2nd and December 7th at 7:00pm in the Parish Hall.
