The library hosts the B & B (books and brownies) Book Group. The group this year will be reading and discussing historical fiction. Our next meeting will be after Thanksgiving break. B & B is a mixed group of any interested students and staff, please consider joining us.
Our next book selection is Salt to the Sea by Ruth Sepetys. Goodreads describes it:
"Each one born of a different homeland; each one hunted, and haunted, by tragedy, lies…and war.
As thousands of desperate refugees flock to the coast in the midst of a Soviet advance, four paths converge, vying for passage aboard the Wilhelm Gustloff, a ship that promises safety and freedom.
Yet not all promises can be kept.
Inspired by the single greatest tragedy in maritime history, bestselling and award-winning author Ruta Sepetys lifts the veil on a shockingly little-known casualty of World War II. An illuminating and life-affirming tale of heart and hope. "
Copies will be available in print, eBook, audiobook and on our circulating nooks. Stop by the library to reserve your copy. Click here for more information about B & B Book Group.
