Monday Night Fiction to discuss ‘Bel Canto’

Dr. Lydia Kualapai, assistant professor of English at Schreiner, will lead the discussion of the Monday Night Fiction group on Feb. 9, at 7 p.m. in the Scarle-Philips Room in the William Logan Library on the Schreiner campus in Kerrville. The group will discuss “Bel Canto” By Ann Patchett.

“Bel Canto” (“beautiful singing”) is about a group of people held hostage by terrorists in a South American country and the relationships that form among them over the time they are forced to live together. The book received Orange Prize for Fiction and PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction, and made the Amazon's Best Books of 2001 list.


This literary event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served. For more information on this or any other Schreiner University humanities event, contact Martha York at the Schreiner University Center for Innovative Learning 830-792-7352.
