The September selection for this book group for mature readers is The Jesus Cow, by Michael Perry. When Harley Jackson discovers that his new calf born on Christmas Eve has black and white splotches on its rib cage in the shape of Jesus Christ, he is faced with a decision: follow his natural inclination to avoid making a scene, or capitalize on the oddity and raise enough money to save his farm. Either way, forces are at work in Swivel, Wisconsin that will change Harley’s life and the future of the whole town.
