Join Julia on the North Adams Library Adult Book Club on the last Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. In September, we’ll discuss The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. Pick up a copy of each month’s book at the library desk, and read along with us.

A stunning debut, “The Secret Life of Bees” follows a young girl who is taken in by three black, bee-keeping sisters. As she enters their mesmerizing secret world of bees and honey, she discovers a place where she can find the single thing her heart longs for most.

Lily Owens’ life has been shaped around the blurred memory of the afternoon her mother was killed. When Lily’s fierce-hearted black “stand-in mother,” Rosaleen, insults three of the town’s most vicious racists, Lily decides they should both escape to Tiburon, South Carolina a town that holds the secret to her mother’s past. There they are taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters who introduce Lily to a mesmerizing world of bees, honey, and the Black Madonna who presides over their household. This is a remarkable story about divine female power and the transforming power of love a story that women will share and pass on to their daughters for years to come.

Join the North Adams Library Adult Book Club on Thursday, October 26 at 5:30 p.m. to discuss Mrs. Poe by Lynn Cullen. Pick up a copy in advance at the library desk, or ask for a large print or audio book copy. Join us on the last Thursday of each month as we discuss our title of the month, and share quizzes, refreshments, and conversation. Call Julia at 937-386-2556 for more information.

A vivid and compelling novel about a woman who becomes entangled in an affair with Edgar Allan Poe, at the same time she becomes the unwilling confidante of his much-younger wife. Inspired by literature’s most haunting love triangle, award-winning author Lynn Cullen delivers a pitch-perfect rendering of Edgar Allan Poe, his mistress’s tantalizing confession, and his wife’s frightening obsession in this new masterpiece of historical fiction.

1845: New York City is a sprawling warren of gaslit streets and crowded avenues, bustling with new immigrants and old money, optimism and opportunity, poverty and crime. Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” is all the rage–the success of which a struggling poet like Frances Osgood can only dream. As a mother trying to support two young children after her husband’s cruel betrayal, Frances jumps at the chance to meet the illustrious Mr. Poe at a small literary gathering, if only to help her fledgling career. Although not a great fan of Poe’s writing, she is nonetheless overwhelmed by his magnetic presence–and the surprising revelation that he admires her work.

What follows is a flirtation, then a seduction, then an illicit affair…and with each clandestine encounter, Frances finds herself falling slowly and inexorably under the spell of her mysterious, complicated lover. But when Edgar’s frail wife, Virginia, insists on befriending Frances as well, the relationship becomes as dark and twisted as one of Poe’s tales. And like those gothic heroines whose fates are forever sealed, Frances begins to fear that deceiving Mrs. Poe may be as impossible as cheating death itself…
