Bailey Cove Classics: The Robber Bridegroom
New! Improved! The Bailey Cove Classics book club is now a "lunch bunch" at 12:00 noon instead of 10:00am each First Monday of the month. Join us on Monday, March 5th, and bring a sack lunch as we discuss Eudora Welty's "The Robber Bridegroom". Legendary figures of Mississippi' s past-flatboatman Mike Fink and the dreaded Harp brothers-mingle with characters from Eudora Welty' s own imagination in an exuberant fantasy set along the Natchez Trace. Berry-stained bandit of the woods Jamie Lockhart steals Rosamond, the beautiful daughter of pioneer planter Clement Musgrove, to set in motion this frontier fairy tale. " For all her wild, rich fancy, Welty writes prose that is as disciplined as it is beautiful" (New Yorker).
