GPL Book Group: Little Sister (Virtual)

Join us for our monthly book discussion! For July we will be reading Little Sister by Patricia Chadwick. We will be reading and discussing her book in July, in preparation for her appearance at our library for the Connecticut Author Trail! Zoom meeting information will be emailed to our newsletter subscribers, registered attendees, and by request. The Library is taking security measures to make this the best experience possible. 

"They promised her heaven, but there was no savior.

Imagine an eighteen-year-old American girl who has never read a newspaper, watched television, or made a phone call. An eighteen-year-old-girl who has never danced—and this in the 1960s.

It is in Cambridge, Massachusetts where Leonard Feeney, a controversial (soon to be excommunicated) Catholic priest, has founded a religious community called the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Center's members—many of them educated at Harvard and Radcliffe—surrender all earthly possessions and aspects of their life, including their children, to him. Patricia Chadwick was one of those children, and Little Sister is her account of growing up in the Feeney sect.

Separated from her parents and forbidden to speak to them, Patricia bristles against the community’s draconian rules, yearning for another life. When, at seventeen, she is banished from the Center, her home, she faces the world alone, without skills, family, or money but empowered with faith and a fierce determination to succeed on her own, which she does, rising eventually to the upper echelons of the world of finance and investing.

A tale of resilience and grace, Little Sister chronicles, in riveting prose, a surreal childhood and does so without rancor or self-pity." Provided by the Publisher.

Be a 4-H Brainiac: Buckle-up Egg (Virtual)

This summer you can participate in 4-H activities with your library in a new way!

Register each week to receive a 4-H activity kit from UConn 4-H New London County.
