Discuss a book over lunch at the Derby Public Library

DERBY >> The Derby Public Library has scheduled its next Lunchtime Book Discussion for Wednesday, Oct. 29, at 12:30 p.m.

The selected title is "The Invention of Wings" by Sue Monk Kidd. This novel by the author of "The Secret Life of Bees," is set in pre-Civil War South Carolina. It follows Sarah, the daughter of the wealthy Grimke family and slave Hetty “Handful” Grimke, her handmaid. The story, which follows 35 years of their lives, was inspired by real-life historical figure, Sarah Grimke – feminist, suffragist and abolitionist. It goes beyond the recorded history and explores the inner lives of all the characters, both real and imagined.

Multiple copies of the book are available at the circulation desk. Participants are asked to bring a sandwich and a friend as they “chat and chew.” Dessert and beverages will be provided. Registration is requested. For more information, stop by the Library at 313 Elizabeth St. or call 203 736-1482 or visit www.derbypubliclibrary.org.

This is a press release from Library Director Cathy Williams.
