Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

The Great SantiniTitle to be discussed: The Great Santini by Pat Conroy.  Date of meeting: March 14, 6:30 p.m.  Summary: "Marine Col. Bull Meecham commands his home like a soldiers' barracks. Cold and controlling, but also loving, Bull has complicated relationships with each member of his family--in particular, his eldest son, Ben. A born athlete who desperately seeks his father's approval, Ben is determined to break out from the colonel's shadow. With guidance from teachers at his new school, he strives to find the courage to stand up to his father once and for all. Inspired by Pat Conroy's own difficult relationship with his father, The Great Santini is a captivating and unflinching portrayal of modern family, and a moving novel of a son determined to become his own man."
