Classics Book Club-Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

Join us October 24th at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt.

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

Shots rang out in Savannah’s grandest mansion in the misty,early morning hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense? For nearly a decade, the shooting and its aftermath reverberated throughout this hauntingly beautiful city of moss-hung oaks and shaded squares. John Berendt’s sharply observed, suspenseful, and witty narrative reads like a thoroughly engrossing novel, and yet it is a work of nonfiction. Berendt skillfully interweaves a hugely entertaining first-person account of life in this isolated remnant of the Old South with the unpredictable twists and turns of a landmark murder case.

Ask at the desk for a copy of this classic or email to reserve a copy today! And be sure to mark your calendars for these upcoming discussions:
