2017 Literary Night-This was Then, This is Now:”Historical Fiction and the Persistence of Culture
Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott
Beloved by Toni Morrison
Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner
Fiction that is set in a bygone historical era usually says more about the contemporary culture of the author than of the characters in the story. Using these three books, we will explore issues like marriage, generational conflict, race, and politics. Sometimes these are better understood by examining them in the past – as a means to better understand our present circumstances.
Presented by Senior Pastor Scott Dudley & Christina Dudley, author
They will examine these themes through this year’s literary titles.
