On January 27th at 6:30 pm, we’ll discuss The Book of Unknown Americans by Christina Henriquez. Named a New York Times and Washington Post Notable Book, and an NPR Great Read, The Book of Unknown Americans tells the story of “fifteen-year-old Maribel Rivera, who sustains a terrible injury forcing the Riveras to leave behind a comfortable life in Mexico and risk everything to come to the United States so that Maribel can have the care she needs. Once they arrive, it’s not long before Maribel attracts the attention of Mayor Toro, the son of one of their new neighbors, who sees a kindred spirit in this beautiful, damaged outsider. Their love story sets in motion events that will have profound repercussions for everyone involved.” The Book of Unknown Americans “offers a resonant new definition of what it means to be American.” Register and receive the zoom link by emailing office@phillipsfreelibrary.org.

The book club will meet via zoom on the fourth Wednesday of the month. Because we are meeting via Zoom, we invite adults near and far, including college students who are home or at school to participate. On March 24th we will discuss An American Marriage by Tayari Jones a New York TImes  and Washington Post notable book.  This is the story of Celestial and Roy, "the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn’t commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy’s time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy’s conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together.
 
This stirring love story is a profoundly insightful look into the hearts and minds of three people who are at once bound and separated by forces beyond their control. An American Marriage is a masterpiece of storytelling, an intimate look deep into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward—with hope and pain—into the future."

Location:

Description:   The library will be offering a monthly virtual book discussion to discuss novels centered on characters with diverse cultures, ethnicities, and life experiences. The book club will meet via zoom on the fourth Wednesday of the month. Because we are meeting via Zoom, we invite adults near and far, including college students who are home or at school to participate.  On April 28th we will discuss The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See.  This is the story of Li-yan, "For the Akha people, ensconced in ritual and routine, life goes on as it has for generations—until a stranger appears at the village gate in a jeep, the first automobile any of the villagers has ever seen.

The stranger’s arrival marks the first entrance of the modern world in the lives of the Akha people. Slowly, Li-yan, one of the few educated girls on her mountain, begins to reject the customs that shaped her early life. When she has a baby out of wedlock—conceived with a man her parents consider a poor choice—she rejects the tradition that would compel her to give the child over to be killed, and instead leaves her, wrapped in a blanket with a tea cake tucked in its folds, near an orphanage in a nearby city.

As Li-yan comes into herself, leaving her insular village for an education, a business, and city life, her daughter, Haley, is raised in California by loving adoptive parents. Despite her privileged childhood, Haley wonders about her origins. Across the ocean Li-yan longs for her lost daughter. Over the course of years, each searches for meaning in the study of Pu’er, the tea that has shaped their family’s destiny for centuries.

A powerful story about circumstances, culture, and distance, The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane paints an unforgettable portrait of a little known region and its people and celebrates the bond of family."

We Read Diverse Books: An American Marriage
The library will be offering a monthly virtual book discussion to discuss novels centered on characters with diverse cultures, ethnicities, and life experiences. The book club will meet via zoom on the fourth Wednesday of the month. Because we are meeting via Zoom, we invite adults near and far, including college students who are home or at school to participate. On March 24th we will discuss An American Marriage by Tayari Jones a New York TImes  and Washington Post notable book.  This is the story of Celestial and Roy, "the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn’t commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy’s time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy’s conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together.
 
This stirring love story is a profoundly insightful look into the hearts and minds of three people who are at once bound and separated by forces beyond their control. An American Marriage is a masterpiece of storytelling, an intimate look deep into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward—with hope and pain—into the future."

We Read Diverse Books: The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane
 The library will be offering a monthly virtual book discussion to discuss novels centered on characters with diverse cultures, ethnicities, and life experiences. The book club will meet via zoom on the fourth Wednesday of the month. Because we are meeting via Zoom, we invite adults near and far, including college students who are home or at school to participate.  On April 28th we will discuss The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See.  This is the story of Li-yan, "For the Akha people, ensconced in ritual and routine, life goes on as it has for generations—until a stranger appears at the village gate in a jeep, the first automobile any of the villagers has ever seen.

The stranger’s arrival marks the first entrance of the modern world in the lives of the Akha people. Slowly, Li-yan, one of the few educated girls on her mountain, begins to reject the customs that shaped her early life. When she has a baby out of wedlock—conceived with a man her parents consider a poor choice—she rejects the tradition that would compel her to give the child over to be killed, and instead leaves her, wrapped in a blanket with a tea cake tucked in its folds, near an orphanage in a nearby city.

As Li-yan comes into herself, leaving her insular village for an education, a business, and city life, her daughter, Haley, is raised in California by loving adoptive parents. Despite her privileged childhood, Haley wonders about her origins. Across the ocean Li-yan longs for her lost daughter. Over the course of years, each searches for meaning in the study of Pu’er, the tea that has shaped their family’s destiny for centuries.

A powerful story about circumstances, culture, and distance, The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane paints an unforgettable portrait of a little known region and its people and celebrates the bond of family."
