North Carolina Postcard

In August the Rosedale Book Club will be traveling to North Carolina through Wiley Cash’s A Land More Kind Than Home.  Pick up a copy of the book and join the discussion at Rosedale library.

Image of the cover of A Land More Kind Than Home
 
About the book:
For a curious boy like Jess Hall, growing up in Marshall, North Carolina,  means trouble when your mother catches you spying on grown-ups. Adventurous and precocious, Jess is enormously protective of his older brother, Christopher, a mute whom everyone calls Stump. Though their mother has warned them not to snoop, Stump can't help sneaking a look at something he's not supposed to—an act that will have catastrophic repercussions, shattering both his world and Jess's.
 

7:00 p.m.
Come see Louis Bayard, author of Roosevelt's Beast.
 
We are excited about the next talk in our partnership with the Literary Hill BookFest that is bringing a series of Capitol Hill author talks to DC Public Library locations on the Hill.
 
Our next Reading Series event is Tuesday, August 19 at 7 p.m. at Northeast Library with Louis Bayard.
