Our next virtual book club is this Wednesday at 7pm! Matt Bloom '86 will read from his latest novel for adults, Salt of the Nation. A discussion of the novel will follow the reading. Salt of the Nation is the story of an ordinary man on an extraordinary journey: a disillusioned gravel plant worker impulsively slugs a presidential nominee during a campaign photo-op and instantly becomes America’s most famous fugitive and newest hero. It’s the story of a contemporary America equally divided and galvanized by an ordinary man’s rash act and desperate journey. Register for the book club and purchase Salt of the Nation at https://connect.vassar.edu/s/1654/2/16/interior-ai.aspx?sid=1654&gid=2&pgid=5804&cid=9533&ecid=9533&crid=0&calpgid=5161&calcid=8471. While not required, we encourage all attendees to read the book before we get together.
