On Pilgrimmage by Jennifer Lash is Chosen for 2008 Summer Reading.
Program kick-off date: May 29, 2008
What’s it about? On Pilgrimage is the story of a journey that novelist Jennifer Lash takes alone after she was diagnosed and treated for cancer. Lash is a lapsed Catholic who left the Church when she opted for sterilization after the birth of her seventh child. Lash speaks with great admiration and respect for the Faith and the faithful. There is nothing polemic, dogmatic or heretical for either Catholics or non-Catholics, but sensitive readers should be aware that on a pilgrimage through Europe, Lash visits places important to the Catholic faith and that Lash does not always present orthodox theology. Lash is the mother of the actors Ralph and Joseph Fiennes. Since the publication of the book, Lash has passed away.
Summer Reading Events: The summer reading program will kick off Thursday May 29th with a free luncheon from 12-1pm at Doherty. Book discussions will follow at the Black Lab beginning at 5:15 on Thursday June 26th and continuing on Thursday July 24th (Black Lab events are “BYOBA” – Buy your own beer and appetizers!).
