Jewelweed by David RhodesThe Hamilton Roddis Memorial Library is continuing to host a Book Club this summer.

Our next summer offering  will be "Jewelweed" by David Rhodes.  


After serving time for a dubious conviction, Blake Bookchester is paroled and returns home. The story of Blake’s hometown is one of challenge, change, and redemption, of outsiders and of limitations, and simultaneously one of supernatural happenings and of great love. Each of Rhodes’s characters—flawed, deeply human, and ultimately universal—approach the future with a combination of hope and trepidation, increasingly mindful of the importance of community to their individual lives. Rich with a sense of empathy and wonder, Jewelweed offers a vision in which the ordinary becomes mythical. (Amazon)

Our meeting will be Tuesday, July 28th at 6 PM. Light refreshments will be served.
