Join the Tenley-Friendship Book Discussion Group on Wednesday, September 24 at 2 p.m. in the Medium Conference Room and discuss Pale Horse, Pale Rider by Katherine Anne Porter.

Pale Horse, Pale Rider contains three short novels, - "Old Mortality," a story of race tracks, of the Deep South, of the survival and shattering of a family legend; "Noon Wine," Texas and a dairy farm rescued from decay by a man who turns out to be an escaped lunatic from Dakota and of the tragedy that ended it all; "Pale Horse, Pale Rider,"a mystical story of the narrow ledge between life and death, set at the time of the flu epidemic. Stories full of simplicity, beauty, clarity, distinction and a sense of drama implicit in character and circumstance, mark Katherine Anne Porter's work.

The Tenley-Friendship Book Discussion Group meets every last Wednesday of the month, except for November and December. All welcome!
