The Book Club at the Carver Public Library meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 2:00 in the Small Meeting Room. We will be reading The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See in January.  "Li-yan and her family align their lives around the seasons and the farming of tea in their remote Yunnan village. Then a stranger arrives, finding the rare tea he has been seeking and a reticent Akha people. Li-yan translates for the stranger. When she has a baby outside of wedlock she wraps her daughter in a blanket, with a tea cake hidden in her swaddling, and abandons her near an orphanage. Adopted by a couple in California, Haley grows up privileged and well-loved. As Haley wonders about her origins, Li-yan longs for her lost daughter. They find answers in the tea that has shaped their family's destiny for generations."  Newcomers are welcome and refreshments will be served.  Books are available at the Circulation Desk.
