Next Meeting: January 4th

Meeting the 1st Tuesday of each month

6:00 PM at The River’s Edge Pub & Grille

Our next pick is ‘”Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith” by Jon Krakauer. Copies are available at the circulation desk (print and audioCD), and the ebook is available on Overdrive/Libby.

NATIONAL BESTSELLER •This extraordinary work of investigative journalism takes readers inside America’s isolated Mormon Fundamentalist communities, where some 40,000 people still practice polygamy. At the core of Krakauer’s book are brothers Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a commandment from God to kill a blameless woman and her baby girl. Beginning with a meticulously researched account of this appalling double murder, Krakauer constructs a multi-layered, bone-chilling narrative of messianic delusion, polygamy, savage violence, and unyielding faith. Along the way he uncovers a shadowy offshoot of America’s fastest growing religion, and raises provocative questions about the nature of religious belief.
