Event Details

Critics acclaim this 1932 novel as possibly the finest fictional work that Scotland produced in the 20th century.  It focuses on a farm family in a remote rural district of Scotland, and how the effects of agrarian modernization and World War I not only unravel the ancient traditions of farming life, but also unravel the members of that family, socially, economically and psychologically. Throughout it all is the persevering heroine, Chris Guthrie. 

Our guest lecturer and discussion leader is Visiting Assistant Professor, Dr. Brian J. McAllister of Ohio University's Department of English.

Registration begins in early May.  The first 15 people to register and commit to attending all four sessions will receive a free copy of the book.
