The Adult Book Club at Brownstown Public Library plans to meet at 11 a.m. Sept. 9.
Hoosier author Gene Stratton-Porter’s book “A Girl of the Limberlost” will be discussed.
Set amid Indiana’s vast Limberlost Swamp, this children’s classic mixes astute observations on nature with the struggles of growing up in the early 20th century. Harassed by her mother and scorned by her peers, Elnora Comstock finds solace in natural beauty along with friendship, independence and romance.
Karen Raymer will lead the discussion.
The club provides an informal, congenial atmosphere for patrons age 18 and older to share their literary interpretations of the current book selection. Everyone is encouraged to read the month’s selection before the meeting but can feel free to attend even if they haven’t finished the book as long as they don’t mind hearing how it ends. Everyone is encouraged to participate in the discussion, but listeners are welcome.
Individuals from the group serve light refreshments on a volunteer basis.
Extra copies of the book selection are available one month in advance at the library circulation desk.
Registration is required.
