Read-a-Long of Going After Cacciato by Tim O’Brien

In the final read-a-long for the 2014 War Through the Generations, we will return to a favorite author of mine — Tim O’Brien.

We’ll be reading Going After Cacciato, which I haven’t read since sometime shortly after college.  It will be only the second time I’ve read it, and I hope that some of you will join us for your first reading of this novel about the Vietnam War.

Since the holidays are approaching for many of us, we’ve split the book into two parts for the read-a-long to make it easier.

Discussion questions will be posted on Fridays for the designated chapters.  Here’s the reading schedule and discussion dates:

  • Friday, Dec. 12: Discussion of Chapters 1-24
  • Friday, Dec. 19: Discussion of Chapter 25-the end

We’re wrapping up another year at War Through the Generations, and we’re hoping that you’ll join us for the final read-a-long.

    I didn’t think you’d read this one before. I can’t wait to finally read it!
