The Afternoon Book Club will discuss The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers.

First published in 1940, this book centers on John Singer, deaf and mute, who becomes the confidant for various types of misfits in a Georgia mill town during the 1930s. Each one yearns for escape from small town life. When Singer’s mute companion goes insane, he moves into the Kelly house, where Mick Kelly, the book’s heroine, finds solace in her music.
