Marilyn Klaus, lecturer with Religious Studies and African and African American Studies at the University of Kansas, will lead a discussion of "I Hear the Reaper’s Song" by Sara Stambaugh at 7 p.m. on Aug. 21, at Newton Public Library, 720 N. Oak.

This is the first book in a three-part “Faith in Fiction: Christianity” series. I Hear the Reaper’s Song tells the tale of a small, close-knit Mennonite community in Pennsylvania suffering a tragedy that forces its members to weigh their religious traditions against the winds of change.

The Talk About Literature in Kansas (TALK) book discussion series is provided by the Kansas Humanities Council (KHC), a nonprofit cultural organization with over 35 years of experience promoting understanding of the history and ideas that shape our lives and build community.
