Looking for a good book for your book discussion group? Check out Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver

Looking for a great book for your fall book discussion?

UU A Way Of Life recommends Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver, and David Markham's companion book Critical Reading of Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver from a Unitarian Univeralist Perspective.

A critical reading of Barbara Kingsolver’s book, Flight Behavior, from a Unitarian Universalist’s perspective explores the topics that Fight Behavior covers: climate change, stagnating marriages, fears for the future of the children we desperately love, the role of science in society, the role of ethics in society, the dynamics of extended family life, cultural differences of region and class, infidelity, the importance of friendship, and the role of religion in our contemporary society. 

Whew! This is not beach book, but a critical reading of a novel of substance, depth, grace and challenge.It is not necessary to have read Flight Behavior to enjoy and profit from this book.
