The 19th Wife

The afternoon group is reading The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff and will meet on Wednesday May 20th at 1pm by the fireplace. Check out a copy at the library today!
The 19th Wife explores the mysteries of love, history and faith in two intertwined narratives: a historical thread about Brigham Young's expulsion of his own 19th wife, Ann Eliza Young from the Mormon Church and a modern-day murder mystery set on a polygamous compound in Utah.

Bestselling author Barbara Kingsolver
returns with her first nonfiction narrative that will open your eyes in a hundred new ways to an old truth: you are what you eat. Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle makes a passionate case for putting the kitchen back at the center of family life and diversified farms at the center of the American diet. --from the book jacket.
