Please join us for Rotary Book Discussion Group for the discussion of the book “A Prayer for Owen Meany” by John Irving.  The book is available at Rainy Day Books and the discussion will be led by Vivien Jennings.  All Rotarians and guests are welcome.


About the book:

In the summer of 1953, two eleven-year-old boys – best friends – are playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire.  One of the boys hits a foul ball that kills the other boy’s mother.  The boy who hits the ball doesn’t believe in accidents; Owen Meany believes he is God’s instrument.  What happens to Owen after that 1953 foul ball is extraordinary.
