Book Discussion: The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck
Thursday, February 21, 2013
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Library Dean Sara Baron will lead a discussion of The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck. This is the author's haunting story of peasant life in China during the final years of imperial rule.
The daughter of Presbyterian missionaries, Pearl Buck was born in West Virginia but grew up in China, where she received a Chinese and Western education. Her first language was Chinese, and she considered herself culturally both Chinese and American.
The Book Club selected The Good Earth as its February book to complement and support the university's Global Roundtable which will be held on February 22nd.
