Lunchtime Literature – Main Library Book Club

Joel D. Valdez Main Library


We will discuss this month’s reading selection, As I Lay Dying: The Corrected Text by William Faulkner.

As I Lay Dying is Faulkner’s harrowing account of the Bundren family’s odyssey across the Mississippi countryside to bury Addie, their wife and mother. Narrated in turn by each of the family members—including Addie herself—as well as others the novel ranges in mood, from dark comedy to the deepest pathos. Considered one of the most influential novels in American fiction in structure, style, and drama, As I Lay Dying is a true 20th-century classic.

You can pick up a copy of this month’s book at the first floor information desk of the Joel D. Valdez Main Library, starting May 16.
