Book Club - May 18

The May 18 meeting of the Riverton Area Book Club will discuss Lilac Girls, by Martha Hall Kelly.
This historical fiction brings attention to the horrific practice of the Nazis to experiment on Polish women who were political prisoners in Ravensbruck, the major female-only concentration camp in Germany. Kelly makes the real-life New York socialite Caroline Ferriday her main character and adds to the story the lives of a young Polish girl who is a resistance fighter and Herta,a German woman doctor.

Book Club - Saturday, April 20 - 10:00am

This Saturday we turn back the calendar to 1843 to experience London in December with Charles Dickens struggling to come up with a book to satisfy his publishers and reading audience. And before the warm weather is here to stay we are asked to feel snowflakes on our faces once again as we consider Samantha Silva's touching tale about the creative process behind A Christmas Carol.

 

Book Club - April 20th

On April 20 the Riverton Area Book Club will look into the creative mind of Charles Dickens as he struggled with overcoming writer's block. In her debut novel Mr. Dickens and His Carol, author Samantha Silva uses humor, imagination, and historical detail to create a story about Dickens and the muse he needed when he was almost bankrupt and his publishers were demanding a new literary work. (For those of you who saw the 2017 movie "The Man Who Invented Christmas" this will be a familiar topic.) .

Book Club - March 16, 2019

The March 16 selection for the Riverton Area Book Club is the best-selling book Before We Were Yours, by Lisa Wingate. Inspired by true history, the author dramatizes the plight of young children who were stolen from their homes in the 1920-1950s and sold to well-paying families.
