Join us for the library's book discussion group at the Horizon Center! This month, we will be discussing the book selected for our One Community, One Read program— Shelby County Reads.

This discussion group meets on the fourth Thursday of most months. At this meeting, we will be discussing BEFORE WE WERE YOURS by Lisa Wingate. Books are available by the library's main circulation desk.

Memphis, 1939. Twelve-year-old Rill Foss and her four younger siblings live a magical life aboard their family’s Mississippi River shantyboat. But when their father must rush their mother to the hospital one stormy night, Rill is left in charge—until strangers arrive in force. Wrenched from all that is familiar and thrown into a Tennessee Children’s Home Society orphanage, the Foss children are assured that they will soon be returned to their parents—but they quickly realize the dark truth. At the mercy of the facility’s cruel director, Rill fights to keep her sisters and brother together in a world of danger and uncertainty...
