Discussing Literature: "Where the Crawdads Sing" by Delia Owens

English Language Book Club Bonn


Datum & Uhrzeit

The English Language Book Club is a book club within the Tannenbusch House in Bonn. Launching in June 2019, the idea is to create a space for exchange and discussion around literature. In this meeting the Book Club will be discussing Delia Owens: Where the Crawdads Sing The book has topped the The New York Times Fiction Best Sellers of 2019 for 20 weeks. Here is the summary from "For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life–until the unthinkable happens.

Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver and Karen Russell, Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps."
