Saskatoon Freethinker Banned Book Club
The next Freethinker Banned Book Club is Tuesday Feb. 1, 7:00 at Nino’s Fireside Room – 801 Broadway Ave – Saskatoon. You don’t need to have read the book but it might help.
Our next meeting will take place on February 1, 2011 – same place, same time. The book that we chose at our last meeting is the 2003 Man Booker Prize winner by DBC Pierre titled Vernon God Little. Here is a synopsis (courtesy Wikipedia).
The title character is a fifteen-year-old boy who lives in a small town in Texas. When his friend Jesus Navarro commits suicide after killing sixteen bullying schoolmates, suspicion falls on Vernon, who becomes something of a scapegoat in his small hometown of Martirio. Fearing the death penalty, he goes on the run to Mexico.
