Bottomland by Michelle Hoover (All Iowa Reads 2017) is the book discussion selection for July 27, 7:30pm at the Library

At once intimate and sweeping, Bottomland follows the Hess family in the years after World War I, as they attempt to rid themselves of the Anti-German sentiment that left a stain on their name. But when the youngest two daughters vanish in the middle of the night, the family must piece together what happened while struggling to maintain their life on the unforgiving Iowa plains. In the weeks after Esther and Myrle’s disappearance, their siblings desperately search for them, through the stark farmlands to unfamiliar world of far-off Chicago. Have the girls run away to another farm? Have they gone to the city to seek a new life? Or were they abducted? Ostracized and misunderstood in their small town in the wake of the war, the Hesses fear the worst.

Leadership for the book discussion will be provided by Rebecca Bock, WHS teacher-librarian.

Please, join the discussion.  It is held in the Library meeting room.  If you need a copy of the book, stop by the Library and check one out!  The book discussion is free and open to the public.
