Let’s Talk About It
Our next meeting will be Monday, May 7th at 1:00 pm with soup and a discussion led by scholar Sue Norton. Lunch is served at 12:30 pm.
Our next book in the “Biographies/Autobiographies” series is “The Brave Cowboy” written by Edward Abbey. You can check out the book at the library.
Jack Burns is a loner at odds with modern civilization. A man out of time, he rides a feisty chestnut mare across the New West – a once-beautiful land smothered beneath airstrips and superhighways. And he lives by a personal code of ethics that sets him on a collision course with the keepers of law and order. Now he has stepped over the line by breaking one too many of society’s rules. The hounds of justice are hot on his trail. But Burns would rather die than spend even a single night behind bars. And they have to catch him first.
A rabid individualist, environmentalist, an literary renegade, Edward Abbey won himself a large, enthusiastic and devoted readership with his brilliantly irreverent fiction. This book inspired the classic motion picture Lonely Are the Brave – a stirring and unforgettable tribute to the forgotten American hero.
Sue Norton is a retired teacher who worked for almost 40 years in local high schools and at Boise State University. She loves reading and talking with people about books and ides. She is a member of the board of the Golden Eagle Audubon Society and loves birds almost as much as books. She has served as a program scholar for Let’s Talk About It since 1990.
Come join us and enjoy the warmth and great conversation each book stimulates in us.
