The Blanchester Public Library Booklovers meets next at 7 p.m., May 8, in the library meeting room.
Two motherless sisters -- Bean and Liz -- are shuttled to Virginia, where their Uncle Tinsley lives in the decaying mansion that's been in their family for generations. When school starts in the fall, Bean easily adjusts and makes friends, and Liz becomes increasingly withdrawn. Then something happens to Liz, and Bean is left to challenge the injustice of the adult world.
The Booklovers regularly meet on the first Thursday of each month to discuss a selected title. Copies of the title are available either at the library or through interlibrary loan.
If you are interested in attending, just contact the library to request a copy of the book. For more information, call the library at 937.783.3585 or Ruth Johnson at 937.783.2503.
