PCIS Book Group

PCIS Book Club –Friday, OCTOBER 25, 7:30 p.m. in the Chapel.

October's selection is Personal Recollection of Joan of Arc by Mark Twain (historical fiction). The product of over 12 years of intense research, Mark Twain considered this not only his most important but also his best work. The story is narrated in the first person by a close friend of the heroine who was able to gather eyewitnesses' accounts of incidents in which he didn't take part. The novel is presented as "Freely Translated out of the Ancient French into Modern English from the Original Unpublished Manuscript in the National Archives of France." It flows like a great adventure, and what better inspiration for a great story teller than the beautiful, modest, and controversial French girl, General Joan of Arc, "the only person of either sex, who has ever held supreme command of the military forces of a nation at the age of seventeen"? A beautiful and inspiring story. Leader: Doug Nicholls.
