Join the North Adams Library Library Adult Book Club on the last Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. to discuss our title of the month at the North Adams Library. On August 31, we’ll discuss The Dollmaker by Henriette Arnow. Pick up a copy at the library desk in advance and read along with us.
The Dollmaker was originally published in 1954 to immediate success and critical acclaim. In unadorned and powerful prose, Harriette Arnow tells the unforgettable and heartbreaking story of the Nevels family and their quest to preserve their deep-rooted values amidst the turmoil of war and industrialization. When Gertie Nevels, a strong and self-reliant matriarch, follows her husband to Detroit from their countryside home in Kentucky, she learns she will have to fight desperately to keep her family together. A sprawling book full of vividly drawn characters and masterful scenes, The Dollmaker is a passionate tribute to a woman’s love for her children and the land.
