Please join us on Tuesday, March 17 at 7:30 pm for friendship, a few snacks and discussion of, Where the Crawdads Sing, by Delia Owens.

Book club has enjoyed a great year so far, and we are pleased to have welcomed a few new faces along the way.  If you have been thinking about joining but haven’t made it yet, there is still time left and we have some great titles coming up.  This month we are reading the highly popular selection, Where the Crawdads Sing--Delia Owens' debut novel that will have you glued to the book within the first few pages!

"For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. She's barefoot and wild; unfit for polite society. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark. But Kya is not what they say. Abandoned at age ten, she has survived on her own in the marsh that she calls home. A born naturalist with just one day of school, she takes life lessons from the land, learning from the false signals of fireflies the real way of this world. But while she could have lived in solitude forever, the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. Drawn to two young men from town, who are each intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world--until the unthinkable happens."-- Provided by publisher.
