Our February Book Club selection is based on a notorious true-life scandal. “Before We Were Yours” by Lisa Wingate.
This story starts with a Memphis family in 1939 that live aboard a shantyboat on the Mississippi River. The five siblings end up in a Tennessee orphanage. Many years later, Avery Stafford, living a life of wealth and privilege, has her world shaken by a chance encounter. She begins the journey through her family’s long-hidden past.
Books are available for checkout at our circulation desk in a variety of formats. The group will meet at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 19 for discussion. New members and occasional drop-ins are always welcome to the group. For more information, contact the library at 330-683-1065.
