Nobel Readers Book Club: Echo of Heaven 
Time: 7:00 PM-8:30 PM
Place: Keene Public Library, Green Room, Keene, NH
Price: Free
Ages: Older

In 1994, the Nobel Prize in Literature was awarded to Kenzaburo Oe 'who with poetic force creates an imagined world, where life and myth condense to form a disconcerting picture of the human predicament today'. Tonight we will discuss his book Echo of  Heaven. In this book, Marie Kuraki suffers a series of personal tragedies including the loss of her two sons. She leaves her home in Japan searching for a way to understand her life and finds herself venerated as a saint in a remote Mexican village.
This book discussion group is reading some classic works of literature written by authors that have been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Books available for checkout are kept behind the library's main circulation desk. For information about this book group, please contact Gail Zachariah at 603-352-0157.
