Next book discussion Wednesday

The next chapter of Marion City Library’s “One Community, One Book” series of book discussions will be 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Santa Fe Room at Marion City Library.

Randy Collett will lead discussion of “Time’s Shadow,” by Arnold Bauer.

Bauer grew up on a 160-acre family farm in Clay County’s Goshen Township, a land of prairie grass and rich creek-bottom soil. His meditative and moving account of those years depicts a century-long narrative of struggle, survival, and death.

A coming-of-age memoir set in the 1930s to 1950s, the book blends local history with personal reflection to paint a realistic picture of farm life and family from a bygone time.

“Time’s Shadow” eloquently captures the events of an era, and the meaning it held for a boy and those around him.

This is the third year of the library’s “One Community, One Book” reading project, which centers on community-wide reading of a single book, and creating a shared conversation.

Through a shared reading experience, participants discuss issues that matter, learn from each other, and promote greater understanding.

Copies of “Time’s Shadow” are available at Marion City Library.

For more information, call Marion City Library at (620) 382-2442.
