Tuesday, April 18; 12:30 - 2:00 pm

News of the World by Paulette Jiles -- In the aftermath of the Civil War, an aging itinerant news reader agrees to transport a young captive of the Kiowa back to her people in this exquisitely rendered, morally complex, multilayered novel of historic fiction from the author of Enemy Women that explores the boundaries of family, responsibility, honor, and trust.


Tuesday, May 16; 12:30 - 2:00 pm

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith -- The beloved American classic about a young girl's coming-of-age at the turn of the century, Betty Smith's A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is a poignant and moving tale filled with compassion and cruelty, laughter and heartache, crowded with life and people and incident. The story of young, sensitive, and idealistic Francie Nolan and her bittersweet formative years in the slums of Williamsburg has enchanted and inspired millions of readers for more than sixty years.


Rescheduled for TUESDAY, JUNE 27 AT 12:30 - 2:00 PM

Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead -- From prize-winning, bestselling author Colson Whitehead, a magnificent, wrenching, tour de force chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. The Underground Railroad is at once a kinetic adventure tale of one woman's ferocious will to escape the horrors of bondage, and a shattering, powerful meditation on the history we all share.
