Happy Hour Book Group: “The Last Blue”
Decorah Public Library staff are hosting nine book discussions in May. The groups are open to the public and newcomers are encouraged to attend. Anyone interested should call the library at 382-3717 to learn more or to reserve a book. Zoom links are available on the Library’s website or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to any of the seven groups’ email distribution lists. Funds for multiple copy sets were generously provided by Friends of Decorah Public Library.
The Happy Hour Book Group will hold a hybrid meeting Wed. May 11 at 5:15 p.m. to discuss Isla Morley’s “The Last Blue.” In-person attendees will meet in the lower-level public meeting room at the library and digital attendees will join via Zoom. In 1937, two government-sponsored documentarians from Ohio are dispatched to Appalachia for President Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration. For photographer Clay Havens, the assignment is his last chance to reboot his flagging career. So when he and his journalist partner are warned away from the remote Spooklight Holler, they set off eagerly in search of a headline story. What they see will haunt Clay into his old age: Jubilee Buford, a woman whose skin is a shocking and unmistakable shade of blue.
