Book Discussion: The Poisonwood Bible – Bemidji
December 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us in December for this month’s discussion of Barbara Kingsolver’s “The Poisonwood Bible”: The story is told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it — from garden seeds to Scripture — is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is a suspenseful epic of one family’s tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.
