Riverstone Bookclub (NOON) — Orphan Train
September 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Riverstone Bookclub’s September Pick is Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline
Between 1854 and 1929, so-called orphan trains ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest, carrying thousands of abandoned children whose fates would be determined by luck or chance. Would they be adopted by a kind and loving family, or would they face a childhood and adolescence of hard labor and servitude?
Moving between contemporary Maine and Depression-era Minnesota, Orphan Train is a powerful tale of upheaval and resilience, second chances, and unexpected friendship.
Riverstone Bookclub meets to discuss a different book every month. Meetings typically occur at noon on the 3rd Monday of the month and at 6:30pm on the 4th Monday of the month. All are welcome!
