Alan Paton's bestselling novel, Cry, the Beloved Country, is the deeply moving story of the Zulu pastor Stephen Kumalo and his son, Absalom, set against the background of a land and a people riven by racial injustice. Remarkable for its lyricism, unforgettable for character and incident, Cry, the Beloved Country is a classic work of love and hope, courage and endurance. Join us for a book discussion on Thursday, February 18th at 6:30 p.m. in Room 207.
Join our Adult Book Club every third Thursday of the month. We have a lively group discussion for an hour and read mostly literary fiction titles. Members vote on the next book to read each month -- please call the branch for title information at 202-576-7252.

The third Friday of each month, fantasy-loving library staff take over the library's Twitter account to make recommendations, take your suggestions, and talk about all things bookish and magical.
