About the Event

Join Cathedral Canons to explore The Living, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Annie Dillard's first novel. A story of the Pacific Northwest, it traces the challenges and perseverance required to make a life here in the 19th century. Written in her direct style with crystaline descriptions, Dillard's book will offer us ways to consider our roles in relation to the region, to each other, and to God. (Hybrid)

The Living can be purchased at many bookstores or online, and a limited number of copies are available in the Welcome Center for $10.

This Sunday morning series will center thematic discussions, drawing from encounters throughout the novel with religion, race, and landscape to reflect on how the experience of living in this place shapes our lives today. For those craving a more in-depth discussion of the novel, join the Deep Dive class on Wednesdays, where we can explore the novel sequentially, attending to the characters and the plot, as well as the ethical challenges and historical patterns woven throughout.
