The adult book discussion features A Thousand Acres by Jane Smiley. Lear in Iowa. In a seaming, 20th-century version of Shakespeare's tragedy, Smiley —clawing open the "ingratitude" of a monarch's elder daughters to reveal a rage that could out-tempest Lear's — once again examines the buried secret hurts within families and the deadly results when damaged egos are unleashed.
