Fall 2011 – The Diviners
The Diviners, set in southern Indiana in the early 1930s, is the story of a disturbed young
man and his friendship with a disenchanted preacher.
When Buddy was a small child, he narrowly escaped drowning, although his mother drowned in
the same accident trying to save him. Even though this traumatic event left him deathly
afraid of water, Buddy has developed an uncanny ability to find water for his drought-besieged
farm community. When a disillusioned preacher, C.C. Showers, comes to the farm seeking
employment and food, a unique bond develops between them. C.C. devotes himself to helping
Buddy, and his efforts precipitate a dramatic chain of events involving the entire community.
