Beautiful novel, ICON, now features Discussion Guide!

This just in:  thanks to many reader requests, Georgia Briggs has created a Discussion Questions guide for her novel that can be used by book clubs, youth groups, homeschoolers, or anyone who’d like to start a conversation about this thought-provoking story!

The guide has been included in the second printing of the book, which is now available — and for those of us who bought the first printing, it’s online as a free download at the Ancient Faith Store.

Icon: A Novel is an Orthodox dystopian novel for young adults.  Well-written and timely, the novel explores a future in which Orthodoxy is outlawed and the faithful are criminals. It’s a beautiful and engaging and thought-provoking read for young people and old, and it’s required reading in my house. I look forward to revisiting it with my daughters soon, with discussion questions in hand!
