Friday Book Group: “The Personal Librarian”
Decorah Public Library staff are hosting six book discussions in October. 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 email@example.com to be added to any of the groups’ email distribution lists. Funds for multiple copy sets were generously provided by Friends of Decorah Public Library.
The Friday Book Group will meet via Zoom Fri. Oct. 21 at 2:00 p.m. to discuss Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray’s “The Personal Librarian.” In her twenties, Belle da Costa Greene is hired by J.P. Morgan to curate a collection of rare manuscripts, books, and artwork for his newly built Pierpont Morgan Library. But Belle has a secret, one she must protect at all costs: she was born not Belle da Costa Greene but Belle Marion Greener. She is the daughter of Richard Greener, the first Black graduate of Harvard.
Decorah Public Library is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
