September Adult Book Club


The Library Book Club will be meeting on Thursday, September 16th, at 6:30pm in the Community Room.

There has been a change of book; the book for September is Sold by Patricia McCormick.

Lakshmi is a thirteen-year-old girl who lives with her family in a small hut in the mountains of Nepal. Her family is desperately poor, but her life is full of simple pleasures, like raising her black-and-white speckled goat, and having her mother brush her hair by the light of an oil lamp. But when the harsh Himalayan monsoons wash away all that remains of the family’s crops, Lakshmi’s stepfather says she must leave home and take a job to support her family.

 Traveling from her home of Nepal to India, Lakshmi is confronted with the horrific truth: she has been sold into child slavery. Life become cruel and a living nightmare. Still, she lives by her mother’s words—”Simply to endure is to triumph”—and gradually, she forms friendships with the other girls that enable her to survive in this terrifying new world. Then the day comes when she must make a decision—will she risk everything for a chance to reclaim her life?
