Book Club

Date: Thursday, February 6, 2019
Time: 12 Noon to 1pm
Location: Keystone Building, Keystone Conference Center, River Room
The Book: Heartland: A memoir of Working Hard and Being Broke in the Richest Country on Earth, the One Book One Community Selection for Central Pennsylvania

People usually think of the heartland of the United States as a bounty of agriculture and a place where comfort abounds. This memoir traces the life of Sarah among the life of the working poor. Intergenerational poverty and life choices affect the lives of this Kansas farm family.

This is a new meeting place for us with the relocation of the State Library’s services to the Keystone Building for the next few years. When you enter the Keystone Building from North St. Go up the steps into the Atrium and turn right into the first hallway. The center is on the right-hand side. Come into the Conference center and you will see where we are set up.

Books read for this club are available in a variety of formats at your local library. Commonwealth employees can also use EZBorrow through the State Library's website to have it delivered right to the State Library.
