Greenwich Library – Cos Cob Thursday Evening Book Group “This Tender Land” by William Kent Kruegar

July 11 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

***This Book Club is temporarily meeting at the Main Library, in the 2nd Floor Meeting Room, during the Cos Cob renovation***

Join our always interesting evening book club led by facilitator, Judy Berg, as the group discusses popular fiction and non-fiction.

This month’s book is This Tender Land by William Kent Kruegar. “The acclaimed author of Ordinary Grace crafts a powerful novel about an orphan’s life-changing adventure traveling down America’s great rivers during the Great Depression, seeking both a place to call home and a sense of purpose in a world sinking into despair”–
1932, Minnesota. The Lincoln School is a pitiless place where hundreds of Native American children, forcibly separated from their parents, are sent to be educated. It is also home to an orphan named Odie O’Banion, a lively boy whose exploits earn him the superintendent’s wrath. Forced to flee, he and his brother Albert, their best friend Mose, and a little girl named Emmy steal away in a canoe, heading for the mighty Mississippi and a place to call their own. — adapted from jacket.
