Readers Book Club

Readers Book Club to meet
 
BANDON - The Bandon Library Readers Book Club meets at 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 17, in the Bandon Library Sprague Room to discuss "The Indigo Girl" by Natasha Boyd.
Based on a true story, this work of historical fiction (U.S. South in 1700s) is a tale of intrigue, forbidden friendships, ambition, betrayal and sacrifice. It is account of how a teenage girl produced indigo dye, which became one of the largest exports out of South Carolina, an export that laid the foundation for the incredible wealth of several Southern families who still live on today.
Although largely overlooked by historians, the accomplishments of Eliza Lucas influenced the course of U.S. history. When she passed away in 1793, President George Washington served as a pallbearer at her funeral.
Everyone is invited and welcome to join for lively discussion and refreshments, whether or not they've read the book. Copies of the book are available at the library checkout counter. This event is sponsored by Bandon Library Friends.
