Literary Ladies Book
Main Library
Monday, May. 21, 6:00 p.m.
Our  May book will be Commonwealth by Ann Patchett.  Commonwealth is the story of two broken families and the paths their lives take over the course of 40 years, through love and marriage, death and divorce, and a dark secret from childhood that lies underneath it all. 

The June book will be Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley.  It is the summer of 1950 and Flavia de Luce, an aspiring chemist with a passion for poison, is intrigued by a series of inexplicable events. First, a dead bird is found on the doorstep, a postage stamp bizarrely pinned to its beak. Then a man dies in the cucumber patch.  She is both appalled and excited; life had just gotten interesting!

The Literary Ladies Book Group meets on the third Monday of each month at 6:00 pm in the Board Room of the Main Library in Franklin. New members are always welcome.
