December 2013 Book Club Choice

Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner will be discussed at the December meeting of the Pioneer Bookshop Book Club.   The group gathers at 7pm at the Pioneer Bookshop in downtown Grinnell, Iowa, on Thursday, December 5..   New members are welcome and greatly appreciated.   The group is very casual and informal.

Called a “magnificently crafted story...brimming with wisdom” by Howard Frank Mosher in the Washington Post Book World, Crossing to Safety has, since its publication in 1987, established itself as one of the greatest and most cherished American novels of the twentieth century.

Tracing the lives, loves, and aspirations of two couples who move between Vermont and Wisconsin, it is a work of quiet majesty, deep compassion, and powerful insight into the alchemy of friendship and marriage.  (Random House)
