July 9, 2013, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM @ The Aigler Auditorium (3rd Floor)
Carnegie-Stout Public Library’s bi-monthly book discussion group for adults will meet at 7:00 p.m. in the 3rd Floor Aigler Auditorium on Tuesday, July 9, 2013 where the book The Postmistress by Sarah Blake will be discussed. On the eve of the United States' entrance into World War II in 1940, Iris James, the postmistress of Franklin, a small town on Cape Cod, does the unthinkable: She doesn't deliver a letter. In London, American radio gal Frankie Bard is working with Edward R. Murrow, reporting on the Blitz. One night in a bomb shelter, she meets a doctor from Cape Cod with a letter in his pocket, a letter Frankie vows to deliver when she returns from Germany and France, where she is to record the stories of war refugees desperately trying to escape.
Copies of the book are available at the Circulation Desk. The public is cordially invited to attend. For more information, please call the Carnegie-Stout Public Library at 563-589-4225, or visit the Library’s website, www.dubuque.
