Faith In Fiction 2019

Description

This summer we’ll dive together into a fictional world to explore a central text in the tradition of our Faith & Fiction summer program.

After consulting with the Collegium community, the winner for this summer’s novel of choice is:

Laurus by Eugene Vodolazkin 

 
“Love, faith, and a quest for atonement are the driving themes of an epic, prizewinning Russian novel that, while set in the medieval era, takes a contemporary look at the meaning of time… With flavors of Umberto Eco and The Canterbury Tales, this affecting, idiosyncratic novel … is an impressive achievement.”
 

If you’d like to join in the conversation, just email Jess to RSVP and to secure your free copy of the book at jferro@sas.upenn.edu.

 

We’ll have copies available here in the office at 3814 Walnut St., so feel free to email and come by to grab your copy!
