There will be about 1200 eggs, each filled with candy and/or a small prize, and about 100 eggs that include a slip of paper to win a stuffed animal.

How they live with this emotional impoverishment is the story of this amazing novel, which the Pulitzer Prize winning novelist says is her greatest work. Our scholar to lead the discussion will be Dr. Suzanne Brown.
