Bayne Library will be closed Thursday, November 28 and Friday November 29, 2019 in observance of Thanksgiving
Join us November 26th at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines
From the author of A Gathering of Old Men and The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman comes a deep and compassionate novel, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award. A young man who returns to 1940s Cajun country to teach visits a black youth on death row for a crime he didn’t commit. Together they come to understand the heroism of resisting.
Ask at the desk or email email@example.com to reserve a copy of this classic novel. Classics Book Club will not be meeting in December, but be sure to mark your calendars for these upcoming discussions:
1/28/20–Dr. Zhivago by Boris Pasternak

The next Friends of Bayne Library meeting will be Tuesday, November 19th at 6:00 p.m.
