The Center of Everything by Laura Moriarty

Literature with a Kansas Connection is our spring series in the Kansas Humanities Council Book TALK program. Starting in February, we will read 4 books that focus on the modern Kansas experience; urbanization, rural decline, and social changes in the roles of women and minorities. Growing up in 20th century, small-town Kansas is far different from the same experience in 19th century, small-town Kansas. Our first book is The Center of Everything. Evelyn Bucknow, a ten year old growing up in fictional Kerrville, Kansas, seeks the certainty provided by a very conservative church, where she is assured that she is at the “center of everything.” Difficulties and humor appear when her own interest in evolutionary science conflicts with church teachings. Copies of the book are available at the library. Please join us for a lively discussion.
