Humboldt Reads!

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

Please join us for our February Humboldt Reads!  Thursday, February 15th, 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 Appalachian Daughter by Mary Jane Salyers.

Maggie Marin, teenage daughter of parents steeped in Appalachian mountain traditions, struggles against the poverty and the restrictive values cherished for generations by her Tennessee family.

A deeply moving story of birth and death, triumph and tragedy, young love and broken hearts – peopled with unforgettable characters you’ll remember long after you share Maggie’s journey to independence.

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.
