Adult Book Club

This month the Adult Book Club is reading Neverhome by Hunt Laird

"She calls herself Ash, but that's not her real name. She is a farmer's faithful wife, but she has left her husband to don the uniform of a Union soldier in the Civil War. Neverhome tells the harrowing story of Ash Thompson during the battle for the South. Through bloodshed and hysteria and heartbreak, she becomes a hero, a folk legend, a madwoman and a traitor to the American cause. Laird Hunt's dazzling new novel throws a light on the adventurous women who chose to fight instead of stay behind. It is also a mystery story: why did Ash leave and her husband stay? Why can she not return? What will she have to go through to make it back home? In gorgeous prose, Hunt's rebellious young heroine fights her way through history, and back home to her husband, and finally into our hearts."

To check availability or place a hold, please see the catalog.  Copies of the book in various formats can also be picked up anytime at the circulation desk prior to the meeting.

Learn more about the Book Club on our website.

Join our graphic novel book club!. We'll chat about this month's book and enjoy a snack break! This month we're reading Goldie Vance Vol. 1 by Hope Larson and illustrated by Brittney Williams. (For Grades 4+. Registration is appreciated.)

Sixteen-year-old Marigold "Goldie" Vance has an insatiable curiosity. She lives at a Florida resort with her dad, who manages the place, and it's her dream to one day be the hotel's in-house detective. When Walter, the current detective, encounters a case he can't crack, together they utilize her smarts, skills, and connections to solve the mystery...even if it means getting into a drag race, solving puzzles, or chasing a helicopter to do it!

Dance Me a Story

The program, Dance Me a Story, is an interactive story time that introduces literature through movement, music, and imagination.  Designed for children ages 2-6 years old, each session embarks children on a musical adventure centered around a popular fairy tale.  Students are guided through the story using their bodies, voices, and minds to become a collaborating part the storytelling. We will gallop on horses to our castles, sing joyfully as we skip off to grandmother’s house, and of course, we will huff and puff as we blow the houses down! Dance Me A Story is a six-week program with each session developed around stories such as Jack and the Beanstalk, Hansel and Gretel, and the Three Little Pigs.
