Group to discuss Atwood book

MARQUETTE – The Transition Marquette County Reading Group will hold a discussion of the book “The Year of the Flood” by Margaret Atwood at 7 p.m. Thursday in the conference room at Peter White Public Library in Marquette.

The book is set in an imaginary future where society is breaking down, and follows the lives of several members of God’s Gardeners, a group devoted to melding science and faith and the preservation of all plant and animal life.

Anyone may join the conversation, but it would help to have at least started reading the book. For more information, call 226-3314 or email mqtchaz@earthlink.
