NORTH CONWAY— The North Conway Library’s Book Group is reading “The House Girl” by Tara Conklin and will discuss it on Thursday, February 9 at 10:30 a.m. at the library.
This is an open book discussion group. Everyone is welcome, whether or not you are a library member.
The Library Book Group reads both fiction and nonfiction and meets on the SECOND Thursday of each month at 10:30 a.m. at the library in North Conway Village.
The House Girl is an unforgettable story of love, history, and a search for justice, set in modern-day New York and 1852 Virginia.
Weaving together the story of an escaped slave in the pre–Civil War South and a determined junior lawyer, The House Girl follows Lina Sparrow as she looks for an appropriate lead plaintiff in a class-action lawsuit seeking compensation for families of slaves. In her research, she learns about Lu Anne Bell, a renowned prewar artist whose famous works might have actually been painted by her slave, Josephine.
Featuring two remarkable, unforgettable heroines, Tara Conklin’s The House Girl is riveting and powerful, literary fiction at its very best.
