Evening Book Club: The Four Winds

August 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Evening Book Club will discuss the book, The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah, which takes place in Texas, 1934. Millions are out of work and a drought has broken the Great Plains. Farmers are fighting to keep their land and their livelihoods as the crops are failing, the water is drying up, and dust threatens to bury them all. One of the darkest periods of the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl era, has arrived with a vengeance. In this uncertain and dangerous time, Elsa Martinelli—like so many of her neighbors—must make an agonizing choice: fight for the land she loves or go west, to California, in search of a better life.

Contact adult services librarian, Larissa Distler, distlerl@galenalibrary.org, to be added to the mailing list for Evening Book Club.
