Our Events · Tea Time Book Club
Our Tea Time Book Club meets once a month and is led by Library Director Nyama Reed. This month we're reading The women of the copper country : a novel by Mary Doria Russell
"In July 1913, twenty-five-year-old Annie Clements had seen enough of the world to know that it was unfair. She's spent her whole life in the coal-mining town of Calumet, Michigan where men risk their lives for meager salaries--and had barely enough to put food on the table and clothes on their backs. The women labor in the houses of the elite, and send their husbands and sons deep underground each day, dreading the fateful call of the company man telling them their loved ones aren't coming home. When Annie decides to stand up for herself, and the entire town of Calumet, nearly everyone believes she may have taken on more than she is prepared to handle. On her fierce quest for justice, Annie will discover just how much she is willing to sacrifice for her own independence and the families of Calumet."-- Publisher's description.
