The next book the group has picked to read is “The Librarian” by Marie Benedict. 

This remarkable novel is about J. P. Morgan’s personal librarian, Belle da Costa Greene, the Black American woman who was forced to hide her true identity and pass as white in order to leave a lasting legacy that enriched our nation.

 An Instant New York Times Bestseller!…Named a Best Book of the Year by NPR!…

…Historical fiction at its best!

If this is a book that you may be interested in, get yourself a copy and then join in the conversation! This group isn’t strictly just about reading a book, but about getting together to share, laugh and enjoy each other’s company. Not a bad way to spend an early Spring day!
