On Monday, April 19 the Black Voices Book Club of the Shepherd Park Library discussed A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest Gaines. The book generated unprecedented enthusiasm from the members. One of the topics that made the discussion so engaging was that some of members were able to relate the author's description of the fictitious 1940's Louisiana town, Bayonne, to what they know about present day small southern towns.
