LVDL's monthly book discussion that meets on the second Saturday of each month.

This month's title is The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes.

Alice Wright marries handsome American Bennett Van Cleve hoping to escape her stifling life in England. But small-town Kentucky quickly proves equally claustrophobic, especially living alongside her overbearing father-in-law. So when a call goes out for a team of women to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt's new traveling library, Alice signs on enthusiastically. The leader, and soon Alice's greatest ally, is Margery, a smart-talking, self-sufficient woman who's never asked a man's permission for anything. They will be joined by three other singular women who become known as the Packhorse Librarians of Kentucky. 

Copies of the print book will be available at the Circulation Desk. Other formats are available.

Registration is required. If you need help using Zoom, follow this link for an easy-to-follow video or call 847.245.5115.
