The adult book club for the Alpine Branch of the Lincoln County Library system has been in operation since 2009. We meet the first Thursday of each month at 6:30pm in the community room of the Alpine Branch library. All are welcome!
Our current book (December 5):
Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life--until the unthinkable happens.
Remember to bring a treat to share for our December holiday book club meeting!
