Sunday, December 1, 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Under the leadership of Colleen and Larry Kurtz, the CPC Book Club of Central Presbyterian Church, 265 Charlton Avenue West at Caroline Street South, will meet to review and discuss The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver. The Lacuna is a poignant story of a man pulled between two nations as they invent their modern identities. Born in the United States, reared in a series of provisional households in Mexico, Harrison Shepherd finds precarious shelter but no sense of home. Life is whatever he learns from housekeepers who put him to work in the kitchen, errands he runs in the streets, and one fateful day, he discovers a passion for Aztec history. Through darkening years, political winds continue to toss him between north and south in a plot that turns many times on the unspeakable breach—the lacuna—between truth and public presumption. With deeply compelling characters, a vivid sense of place, and a clear grasp of how history and public opinion can shape a life, Barbara Kingsolver has created an unforgettable portrait of the artist—and of art itself. The Lacuna is a rich and daring work of literature, establishing its author as one of the most provocative and important of her time. Everyone is most welcome to join the meeting in the Allan Room at 7 p.m. (enter off Charlton Street) for a captivating review and discussion. For a list of the upcoming CPC Book Club meetings select Book Club Flyer and for a brief synopsis of the books selected for the coming season select Book Club Program.

Preferred formatting for submissions to the Events Page of PresbyKirk.
The preferred formatting follows the pattern of most of the entries on this page. They open with the day and date, include the identity of the hosting congregation or organization, and then cite the particulars of location, time, event details, cost, registration process, website link, etc. This information can be submitted in a Word document or in the body of an e-mail. Additional supporting documents may include posters, registration forms or brochures. The ideal file format for supporting documents is .pdf but we can work with whatever you supply. Announcements that follow this protocol can be posted almost immediately. If you simply provide .pdf posters etc. then the process of extracting and reformatting the information is substantially more time consuming and may slightly delay the posting of the event.
