Virtual: 'The Good Earth' : a discussion of Pearl S. Buck and her Pulitzer Prize Winning Novel

Virtual: 'The Good Earth' : a discussion of Pearl S. Buck and her Pulitzer Prize Winning Novel Online

Join this very special Page Turners discussion of The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck. This spring marks 90 years since the author was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for this moving story of the good fortunes and hardships of the Chinese peasant farmer, his selfless wife and their family. This classic book has become a must read to fully appreciate the sweeping changes that have occurred in the lives of the Chinese people during the last century. 

The discussion will be led by members of the Pearl S. Buck Book Discussion Group.  This group has been meeting since the 1970's at the Pearl S. Buck House museum in Perkasie, PA.  Cindy Louden serves as the Discussion facilitator as well as Chair of the Pearl S. Buck Writing Center. Most of the group's members are House Docents and Volunteers who serve in many roles assisting Pearl S. Buck International to further the legacy of the organization's founder, to improve the lives of children and promote international and cross-cultural understanding.  

Whether you've read the book recently, fifty years ago, or never quite got the chance, join us to learn more about Pearl S. Buck and the book that earned her both the Pulitzer and Nobel prizes.
