Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted the quiet town of Barkley Cove, on the North Carolina coast; so in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life–until the unthinkable happens.
“We have to choose our books quite far in advance. . . as I'm typing this, I'm thinking about getting a pedicure and if its too early to think Fall colors. . . Anyway, this book is so popular right now, we actually guffaw when someone comes in to see if it's on shelf. I thought that if I waited long enough the popularity of this book would slow down and I can choose it for my book club. . . well Meghan Moran, of Mysteries in the Morning thought the same thing! We decided rather than fighting over it, we would both use this book for the last book of the season. Meghan's discussion, on (insert date here) will focus on the mystery of the book, where my discussion on (insert date) will be more focused on the characters. Join us for one or both, we would love to see you!” Shannon
Copies will be available on the "Read Gather Discuss" display in the lobby approximately 1 month before the discussion.
