LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!!

The Adult Book Club will meet on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at 7:00pm in the library.  This month’s book will be The Girls in the Stilt House by Kelly Mustian. 

Set in 1920s Mississippi, this debut novel tells the story of two teenage girls cast in an unlikely partnership through murder.  Ada promised herself she would never go back to her hard life on the swamp and her harsh father. But now, after running away to Baton Rouge and briefly knowing a different kind of life, she finds herself with nowhere to go but back home. And she knows there will be a price to pay with her father.  Matilda, daughter of a sharecropper, is doing what she can to protect her family from the whims and demands of some particularly callous locals. She forms a plan to go north, to pack up the secrets she’s holding about her life in the South and hang them on the line for all to see in Ohio.  As the two girls are drawn deeper into a dangerous world of bootleggers and moral corruption, they must come to terms with the complexities of their tenuous bond and a hidden past that links them in ways that could cost them their lives.
