Humboldt Reads!

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

Please join us for our February Humboldt Reads!  It will be held on Thursday, February 7th, 5:30 pm at Pasquale’s in Humboldt, IA.  Attendees pay for their meal choice, but no pre-registration or monthly commitment is required.

This month’s selection is Sold on a Monday by Kristina McMoriss.

“The sign is a last resort.  It sits on a farmhouse porch in 1932, but could be found anywhere in an era of breadlines, bank runs, and broken dreams.  It could have been written by any mother facing impossible choices.

For struggling reporter Ellis Reed, the gut-wrenching scene evokes memories of his family’s dark past.  He snaps a photograph of the children, not meant for publication.  But when it leads to his break, the consequences are more devastating than he ever imagined.

At the paper, Lillian Palmer is haunted by her role in all that happened.  She is far too familiar with the heartbreak of children deemed unwanted.  As the bonds of motherhood are tested, she and Ellis must decide how much they are willing to risk to mend a fractured family.

Inspired by an actual newspaper photograph that stunned the nation, Sold on a Monday is a powerful novel of love, redemption, and the unexpected paths that bring us home.”
