LIBRARY BOOK CLUB: THE SECRET LIFE OF SUNFLOWERS BY MARTA MOLNAR

February 29 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free
Main Branch Book Clubs

Join the Main Library’s Book Club, hosted by Librarian, Robby Camastro.  We will be reading the highly acclaimed novel, The Secret Life of Sunflowers by Marta Molnar. Copies of this book are located in our library catalog.

“When Hollywood auctioneer Emsley Wilson finds her famous grandmother’s diary while cleaning out her New York brownstone, the pages are full of surprises. The first surprise is, the diary isn’t her grandmother’s. It belongs to Johanna Bonger, Vincent van Gogh’s sister-in-law.

Johanna inherited Vincent van Gogh’s paintings. They were all she had, and they weren’t worth anything. She was a 28 year old widow with a baby in the 1800s, without any means of supporting herself, living in Paris where she barely spoke the language. Yet she managed to introduce Vincent’s legacy to the world.

The inspiration couldn’t come at a better time for Emsley. With her business failing, an unexpected love turning up in her life, and family secrets unraveling, can she find answers in the past?”

Book Club will meet at The Waterworks at 10:30 a.m. on February 29, 2024.

Registration is recommended but not required. Register online or via email: rcamastro@sjcfl.us

Beverages and a light snack will be provided by the Friends of the Main Library.

New members are always welcome!
