Book Discussion: Where the Crawdads Sing
Sep 21 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life–until the unthinkable happens. Copies of Where the Crawdads Sing, by Delia Owens, will be available for checkout at the library Circulation Desk! This discussion is free and open to the public.

Cook the Book
Oct 1 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Do you love browsing through cookbooks or trying new recipes and cooking techniques? This fall consider joining our most popular book club – Cook the Book!

Once a month, our tastiest adult program will introduce fellow foodies to new tastes, cooking techniques, and great books about cooking. This unique book group brings together patrons who love to cook for a shared meal and conversation about food and cooking.

To participate, choose a recipe to prepare and share for the first meeting. Each month there is a different theme, so check with library staff to see what the group will be discussing, and what kind of recipe to bring!

It will only be necessary to make one regular-sized recipe – no need to double! Subsequent meetings will be themed according to the group’s choices.
