The Adult Literacy Book Club's Fall Book Selection

By Phil K. RSS Wed, September 22, 2021

Join the Adult Literacy Book Club, presented by the Free Library's Languages and Learning Center and Beyond Literacy. Improve your reading skills while reading and discussing interesting books!

Don't always have a lot of time to read? No problem. The club only covers a few chapters at each meeting, so you will have plenty of time to finish the book.

Our latest book selection is Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See.

The story takes place In nineteenth-century China, when wives and daughters were foot-bound and lived in almost total seclusion, The women in one remote county developed their own secret code for communication: nu shu ("women’s writing"). As the years pass, through famine and rebellion, they reflect upon their arranged marriages, loneliness, and the joys and tragedies of motherhood.

This title can be borrowed from our catalog in physical book format, as well as ebook and audiobook versions available from Overdrive.

The Adult Literacy Book Club will meet every other Thursday from 5:00 p.m.– 6:30 p.m., starting on October 7.
