The Let’s Talk About It book group facilitated by Lee Heffner will meet on Tuesday, February 12, at 11 a.m. at Thomaston Public Library to continue “The Civil War: Fiction” series with a discussion of the book “Absalom, Absalom!” by William Faulkner.

The Modern Library edition states: “‘Absalom, Absalom!’ is William Faulkner’s major work — his most important and ambitious contribution to American literature. In the dramatic texture of this story of the founding, flourishing and decay of the plantation of Sutpen’s Hundred, and of the family that demonic Stephen Sutpen brought into the world a generation before the Civil War, there rises the lament of the South for its own vanished splendor.”

Everyone is welcome. The next book in the series, to be discussed on March 12, will be “Beloved” by Toni Morrison. Copies will be available to borrow at the library.
