Faith in Fiction: World Faiths TALK Series

Abilene Public Library will offer a three-part book discussion series February through May on “Faith in Fiction:  World Faiths.”  Members of the community are invited to attend the free programs,

The series is sponsored by Humanities Kansas (HK), a nonprofit cultural organization, as part of its Talk About Literature in Kansas (TALK) program.  HK is furnishing the books and discussion leaders for the Abilene Public Library TALK series.  For more information about HK, visit

In this series, readers will meet individuals and families who are struggling to find and keep their faith in a changing world.  The books do not analyze or argue for faith; they pose unpredictable questions and offer no simple answers.  They permeate the minds and hearts of characters who live in worlds that are often unfamiliar to us.  Yet they also bring us home to a greater understanding of what gives us faith, how that faith is tested and transformed, and what common fears, desires, and challenges link us in the human family.
