Read ‘THE OVERSTORY’ with our Book Club

We are beginning the next round of reading in our online literary group, the Mother of All Book Clubs! This club is open to anyone with a connection to Mary Washington–alumni, parents, donors, faculty, and staff. Join us!

Our next selection is The Overstory, by Richard Powers. This book was the Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction and spent more than one year on The New York Times bestseller list.

From The New York Times: “In this series of interconnected stories, the human characters are just the underbrush; the true protagonists are the trees that they encounter. Powers combines botany and storytelling in this majestic novel.”

Pick up a copy of the book and start reading–we will begin posting discussion questions on Monday, April 19. You might have a small-business bookseller you like to support, or you might want to try your local library system. But if you need the book shipped, below are some links to larger online providers.

We look forward to reading with you!

All the best,

The Alumni Relations Team
