September Book Club

On Monday, September 17th, the Deercreek Book Club will meet at 10:00 at the home of Phyllis Basford to discuss John Grisham’s novel, The Reckoning.


October 1946, Clanton, Mississippi

Pete Banning was Clanton, Mississippi’s favorite son – a decorated World War II hero, the patriarch of a prominent family, a farmer, father, neighbor, and a faithful member of the Methodist church. Then one cool October morning he rose early, drove into town, and committed a shocking crime. Pete’s only statement about it – to the sheriff, to his lawyers, to the judge, to the jury, and to his family was: “I have nothing to say.” He was not afraid of death and was willing to take his motive to the grave. 

In a major novel unlike anything he has written before, John Grisham takes us on an incredible journey, from the Jim Crow South to the jungles of the Philippines during World War II; from an insane asylum filled with secrets to the Clanton courtroom where Pete’s defense attorney tries desperately to save him.


The Deercreek Book Club meets every 3rd Monday at 10:00 in the homes of members. Members mingle and enjoy refreshments prior to book discussion. All are welcome. For more information please contact Chris Middlebrook, or 407-461-0756.
