Classics Club discusses Slouching Towards Bethlehem

Join moderator Kathy Schultenover for a discussion of Joan Didion’s book Slouching Towards Bethlehem. Parnassus Book Club meetings are free and open to anyone.  Buy the book, read the book and join the discussion.

A half-century after its initial publication in 1968, Joan Didion’s Slouching Towards Bethlehem remains the essential portrait of America - and California in particular - during the sixties. The remarkable debut essay collection by one of the most distinctive prose stylists of our era, it explores such subjects as John Wayne and Howard Hughes; growing up in California; the nature of good and evil in a Death Valley motel room; and San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury, the heart of the counterculture
