Belgrade Library's November Book Club Novel Set in Mississippi Delta
Mudbound by Hillary Jordan portrays the life of Laura McAllan, struggling to adjust to farm life, motherhood, and being a wife in the Mississippi Delta in 1946. The book is a well rendered depiction of the fury and terror wrought by racism. Jordan's book received the 2006 Bellwether Prize, founded by Barbara Kingsolver to reward books of conscience, social responsibility and literary merit.
