Get a Leg Up on the Next Book Club – The Language of Flowers – Wednesday, September 11
Since the monthly Book Club is on hiatus for the month of August, now would be a great time to get ahead for September’s installment by reading The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. The book revolves around Victoria, an 18-year old who had been kicked around the foster care system. Having a hard time getting close to anyone, she connects with people through her unique knowledge of flowers and their meanings. While we don’t want to give away the plot, we want to help you get a copy of the book and encourage you to come to our book club on Wednesday, September 11.
That’s it for this week. Please come in and have a fun, cool time at Greenfield Public Library.
