“The Goldfinch” by Donna Tartt
Composed with the skills of a master, The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present day America and a drama of enthralling force and acuity. “The Goldfinch is a rarity that comes along perhaps half a dozen times per decade, a smartly written literary novel that connects with the heart as well as the mind.” (Stephen King, The New York Times Book Review)
Wednesday, March 5, 7–8 p.m.
“Christ of the Celts: The Healing of Creation” by J. Phillip Newell
Written by one of the foremost experts on Celtic spirituality, this moving book offers a reflection on the “forgotten” Jesus, the Christ of the ancient Celtic tradition. Drawing on the gospels of Thomas and the Acts of John and on the writings of Irenaeus, Eriugena and Teilhard de Chardin, the author ignites us with the possibilities that can come from understanding this ancient spiritual tradition.

The second entails one of the most remarkable narratives ever to come out of the Old West: the epic saga of the pioneer woman Cynthia Ann Parker and her mixed-blood son Quanah, who became the last and greatest chief of the Comanches.
