Take A Page – Mark Meier

Every other week, we share what our patrons are reading with the Omaha World-Herald.

This week, Mark Meier, patron of the Charles B. Washington Branch shares the Southern literature he enjoys most.

1. “Light in August” by William Faulkner. “I appreciate the depth of symbolism using Joe Christmas as an allegory.”

2. “The Glass Menagerie” by Tennessee Williams. “The emotional depth provided in this book is very moving.”

3. “Absalom, Absalom!” by William Faulkner. “This book is a beautifully written allegory of King David and his son.”


4. “As I Lay Dying” by William Faulkner. “This book shows criticisms of society in a moving way.”

5. “A Streetcar Named Desire” by Tennessee Williams. “This book shows the problems in mankind. It was also a film starring Marlon Brando.”
