Friday Book Club

Friday, June 5 @ 10am

The Invention of WingsThis month's selection The Invention of Wings, by Sue Monk Kidd, follows Hetty "Handful" Grimke, a Charleston slave, and Sarah, the daughter of the wealthy Grimke family. The novel begins on Sarah's eleventh birthday, when she is given ownership over Handful, who is to be her handmaid. "The Invention of Wings" follows the next thirty-five years of their lives. Inspired in part by the historical figure of Sarah Grimke (a feminist, suffragist and, importantly, an abolitionist), Kidd allows herself to go beyond the record to flesh out the inner lives of all the characters, both real and imagined.  New members are always welcome.

Fall is approaching, and if you’re a high school junior or senior, that means college applications. Applying to college can seem like a daunting task--But one thing that you shouldn’t worry about is the application essay. This class will explain what colleges are looking for in those essays they ask you to write. Applying for a couple of scholarships? The class will address those, too. By the end of the class series, you should have a good grasp of what makes a solid essay—arguably the most important part of any application. Parents, this class series is free—it’s completely funded by the Bartram Trail Branch Friends of the Library. Class size is limited and pre-registration is requested; call the library at 827-6960 to reserve your space.
