The “Open Afternoon Book Club” for adults at the Cazenovia Public Library meets in the Story Garden every third Wednesday at 1:00 pm.
The February 18th selection, The Movement of Stars, described as “vividly told and meticulously researched,” is Amy Brill’s debut novel.
In this novel, readers are taken to the Nantucket of the 1800’s. Here Hannah Price struggles to obey her Quaker community while becoming an astronomer—her dream. Then exotic Isaac Martin asks to study with her, and she finds she has a lot to learn about love. Inspired by real-life astronomer Maria Mitchell, Brill’s Hannah lights the way, like a comet, for women whose minds and hearts lead them beyond boundaries. (People)
Future selections for the “Open Afternoon Book Club” are The Vacationers by Emma Straub, Quirky Peggy and the Gold Finch by Warren W. Evans, and the Summer of ‘27 by Bill Bryson.
The “Open Afternoon Book Club” is free and open to the public. Books are available at the circulation desk and all are welcome.
