Adult Book Club meeting at Brownstown library


The Adult Book Club will meet at 1 p.m. July 14 at the Brownstown Public Library, 120 E. Spring St., to discuss “A Piece of the World” by Christina Baker Kline.

To Christina Olson, the entire world was her family’s remote farm in the small coastal town of Cushing, Maine. Born in the home her family had lived in for generations and increasingly incapacitated by illness, Christina seemed destined for a small life. Instead, for more than 20 years, she was host and inspiration for artist Andrew Wyeth and became the subject of one of the best-known American paintings of the 20th century.

As she did in her beloved smash bestseller “Orphan Train,” Kline interweaves fact and fiction in a powerful novel that illuminates a little-known part of America’s history.

Light refreshments are served by individuals from the group on a volunteer basis. Extra copies of the book selection are available one month in advance at the library circulation desk.

Registration is requested and may be done at the circulation desk or by calling the library at 812-358-2853. Karen Raymer leads the program.
