General Book Club - Fiction/Nonfiction: Dispatches from Pluto

Our General Book Club reads books from all genres, fiction and nonfiction, and newcomers are always welcome! In January, the group enjoyed a lively discussion of Ann Patchett’s State of Wonder, which takes place primarily along the Amazon River.

We’re moving closer to home for our February pick, Dispatches from Pluto: Lost and Found in the Mississippi Delta by Richard Grant. What happens when an English travel writer living in a tiny apartment in New York City with his liberal girlfriend and big dog moves to a mansion in Pluto, Mississippi?  With humor and great insight, Grant creates an engaging memoir while writing about unforgettable local characters, poverty, and racism. Join us on February 18th at 6:30 for another lively discussion!
