All adults are welcome to participate in monthly book discussions. For a morning of lively discussion call 740.924.3561, email Miss Martha at email@example.com or stop by the library to join the Book Club. You need not be available every month in order to participate. The choice for December is Maude (1883-1993) She Grew Up with the Country by Mardo Williams.
During her 110-year lifetime, Maude Allen Williams went from oil lamps to a microwave oven, from the horse and buggy to an automobile. Maude lived simply, suffered hardships, took in stride the time-consuming hand-labor of the 1900s — and, when she died at age 110, left family and friends with an enduring memory of her patience, kindness and courage, her quiet acceptance of the conditions over which she had no control, and the exemplary standards by which she lived. Highly recommended! —Midwest Book Review
