Date: 
Wednesday, February 27, 2013 - 6 p.m.

Join us as we discuss The Twelve Tribes of Hattie.

The New North was full of promise so in 1923, Hattie Shepherd left Georgia enroute to Pennsylvania in search of a better life. She was just 16 years old. She soon married and gave birth to her first-born twins. The disappointment begins when her children succumb to pneumonia because she is unable to pay for the medicine they need to survive.

The story then follows the lives of her nine surviving children and the courage she used to raise them in a time when survival was the name of the game.
