Monday Evening Book Club
Monday, January 18th | 7:00 PM
Online via GoToMeeting
In January, we will discuss The Mountains Sing by Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai, an enveloping, multigenerational tale of the Tran family, set against the backdrop of the Việt Nam War. Tran Diệu Lan, who was born in 1920, was forced to flee her family farm with her six children during the Land Reform as the Communist government rose in the North. Vivid, gripping, and steeped in the language and traditions of Việt Nam, The Mountains Sing brings to life the human costs of this conflict from the point of view of the Vietnamese people themselves, while showing us the true power of kindness and hope.
Call the library at 845-266-5530 to reserve your copy.

Tea Time Book Club
Thursday, January 14th | 2:00 PM
Online via Zoom
In January, the Tea Time Book Club will be reading The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes. From the author of Me Before You, The Giver of Stars is set in Depression-era America, a breathtaking story of five extraordinary women and their remarkable journey through the mountains of Kentucky and beyond. At times funny, at others heartbreaking, this is a richly rewarding novel of women’s friendship, of true love, and of what happens when we reach beyond our grasp for the great beyond.
