The next meeting of The Catapult Book Club will come to order on the evening of Thursday, June 11 at 6pm - online! This meeting will be happening via Zoom.
The current selection is Barn 8 by Deb Olin Unferth
“Unferth’s gift as a short story writer is evidenced in this novel. . . . Within moments of being introduced to [her] characters, we know them intimately, care about them deeply. . . . The thorough research Unferth must have done on the historical, cultural and agricultural aspects of hens and roosters is woven naturally throughout the text, and many of these characters are motivated to take action for the sake of these animals’ rights. Barn 8 is a beautiful, urgent, politically charged book with a huge heart, and while the plot is sometimes madcap, well, so is love.”—The New York Times Book Review
