Franklin Pierce English Faculty to Host Summer Community Book Club
June 15, 2020
The Franklin Pierce English Department is excited to share the launch a summer 2020
book club called Raven Nation Lit! This event is open to both the Franklin Pierce
community and the public.
As students often solicit summer-reading recommendations from faculty, the opportunity
presented itself to involve the broader community and expand the Ravens Read book
group that currently runs in partnership with RiverMead Lifecare Community in Peterborough.
June’s selected reading will be WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING by Delia Owens, a New York
Times bestseller about Kya Clark, the "Marsh Girl," from the haunted Barkley Cove,
North Carolina. When the charming Chase Andrews is found dead late in 1969, Kya is
suspected. The New York Times Book Review says CRAWDADS is: "Painfully beautiful ...At
once a murder mystery, a coming-of-age narrative, and a celebration of nature."
Members of the English Faculty will be hosting the ZOOM book group on June 26 at 6
pm. To join, please email .
