January 17th at Noon (for Adults – ages 18+) The Brown Bag Book Club will be meeting to discuss this month’s book selection of Stones from the River by Ursula Hegi. The book is about “Trudi Montag, a dwarf. She is short, undesirable, different, the voice of anyone who has ever tried to fit in. Eventually she learns that being different is a secret that all humans share—from her mother who flees into madness, to her friend Georg whose parents pretend he’s a girl, to the Jews Trudy harbors in her cellar.” (Summary taken from GoodReads.com) The program is being held in room C on the Library’s 3rd floor.
