The Tuesday Book Club Selection for August

1:00 pm August 10, at the Library.

Join us as we discuss The Engineer’s Wife by Tracey Enerson Wood. Emily Warren Roebling is the wife of the chief engineer for the Brooklyn Bridge. When her husband suffers the bends from his underwater work on the structure, she takes on the task of overseeing the project’s completion. P.T. Barnum becomes her most trusted supporter as Emily deals  with rough work crews and the city’s corrupt politicians. Kirkus Review said “the writing meticulously evokes the sights, sounds, and smells of 1870s New York.”

Extra copies will be available at the circulation desk.

This program is held in the library’s meeting room – newcomers always welcome!
