    Join us for a discussion of William Maxwell's enduring classic, So Long, See You Tomorrow. On a winter morning in the 1920s, a shot rings out on a farm in rural Illinois. A man has been killed and the tenuous friendship between two lonely teenagers has been shattered. Fifty years later, one of those boys - now a grown man - tries to reconstruct the events that led up to the murder. Critics have called this a novel that in it's calm reflection makes greatness seem simple.

    Refreshments will be served.
