Humboldt Reads!

August 16, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

An enjoyable hour with an informal dinner and interactive book discussion!

Please join us for our August Humboldt Reads!  It will be held on Thursday, August 16th, 5:30 pm at Vinny’s BBQ in Dakota City, IA.  Attendees pay for their meal choice, and no pre-registration or monthly commitment is required.

This month’s selection is If The Creek Don’t Rise by Leah Weiss.

“Sadie Blue has been a wife for fifteen days. That’s long enough to know she never should have hitched herself to Roy Tupkin, even with the baby.

Adie is desperate to make her own mark on the world, but in remote Appalachia, a ticket out of town is hard to come by, and hope often gets stomped out. When a stranger comes up the mountain and knocks things off-kilter, Sadie finds herself with an unexpected lifeline. She’ll need all the pluck and courage she can muster to figure out how to use it.

Bursting with heart, honesty, and homegrown grit, If the Creek Don’t Rise unfolds through a forgotten holler’s most interesting folks, from a stunning new voice in Southern fiction.”

Note:  Please return your copy by its due date so others may enjoy this month’s selection.  Attend Humboldt Reads! and you are welcome to a copy of the book by stopping in the library and requesting a copy after joining our discussion.
