We’ll be discussing The Hired Girl by Laura Amy Schlitz, a historical novel about a 14-year-old girl who flees her family’s farm and tries to build a better life for herself working for an upper-class family in Baltimore.
Copies are still available at the front desk if you haven’t picked one up yet. Copies of our next book, My Brother Sam is Dead by James Lincoln Collier, are on order now and should arrive in time for the meeting.
The Not-So-Young Adult Book Group is for adults, but we read and discuss books written for teens. Newcomers are always welcome!
