For the last book club of the semester, we’ll be reading Mark Twain’s “Diaries of Adam and Eve,” a charming reflection on the story from Genesis 2-3. As you read, take note of where God does and does not appear. We’ve also included a brief, decidedly less charming excerpt from Twain’s Letters from Earth, which paints a rather different picture of the Genesis story.

This will be the last book club of the semester, and it will be led by book club stalwart and graduating senior, Seth LaRue. Find the reading here.
