Books & Tea: Discussion of Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward
To complement this year’s SaratogaREADS! selection of a non-fiction title (which the group will discuss on January 18, 2018) the Books and Tea season will focus on novels with themes related to the main selection and Junior companion, including the effects of revolutionary historical changes in society, the sciences, and the weather. “Books and Tea” meets at 3:30 PM on the third Thursday of each month, and all are welcome.
Set in the Mississippi Gulf Coast as Hurricane Katrina bears down, this devastating first novel by a recent MacArthur “Genius” Grant winner shines a light on rural poverty.
Books and Tea is an ongoing reading group that meets each month from September through June. Copies of the book may be obtained in the Reading Group Choices collection or by placing holds on the online public catalog. Stop by at the Saratoga Springs Public Library’s Information Desk for any assistance. Come on down and join us for good conversations around books! No registration required.
