Afternoon Book Club

This month, we're discussing Hang the Moon by Jeanette Walls. We're a small book club and always looking to welcome new members. Please consider joining our friendly group in the library's Lower Level Conference Room.

From the Publisher:
Sallie Kincaid is the daughter of the biggest man in a small town, the charismatic Duke Kincaid. Born at the turn of the 20th century into a life of comfort and privilege, Sallie remembers little about her mother who died in a violent argument with the Duke. By the time she is just eight years old, the Duke has remarried and had a son, Eddie. While Sallie is her father's daughter, sharp-witted and resourceful, Eddie is his mother's son, timid and cerebral. When Sallie tries to teach young Eddie to be more like their father, her daredevil coaching leads to an accident, and Sallie is cast out.

Nine years later, she returns, determined to reclaim her place in the family. That's a lot more complicated than Sallie expected, and she enters a world of conflict and lawlessness. Sallie confronts the secrets and scandals that hide in the shadows of the Big House, navigates the factions in the family and town, and finally comes into her own as a bold, sometimes reckless bootlegger.

"You'll fall in love with Sallie on the very first page and keep rooting for her all the way through to the last" (Good Housekeeping) in this thrilling read that "goes down the forbidden whisky that defines the life of Sallie Kincaid" (Associated Press).
