The Woodbury Community Library hosts an informal adult winter reading discussion group, beginning Wednesday, January 17, in celebration of Martin Luther King Day, with the 2017 Vermont Reads book BROWN GIRL DREAMING by Jacqueline Woodson. Free copies are available at the library. A beautifully written memoir about growing up in South Carolina and New York in the 1960s and 1970s, the book offers plenty for readers to discuss – both about Woodson’s book and their own lives. About the book, Woodson writes, “I share what it was like to grow up as an African American in the 1960s and 1970s, living with the remnants of Jim Crow and my growing awareness of the Civil Rights movement. It also reflects the joy of finding my voice through writing stories, despite the fact that I struggled with reading as a child. My love of stories inspired and stayed with me, creating the first sparks of the writer that I was to become.” For more info or to pick up a book, stop by or contact the library at woodburyvermontlibrary@gmail.com or 472-5710. Library hours are Mondays and Wednesdays, 1-5 pm, and Saturdays, 10 am-noon. Attendees will chose the next date and reading material – reasonable in length.
