A celebration of reading! 

Read each selection & join staffer Wendy Wise for a spirited discussion!  

Last Wednesday of each month at 7 pm in the Conference Room.

  • September 24: The House Girl by Tara Conklin 

Mister hit Josephine with the palm of his hand across her left cheek and it was then she knew she would run. 

Josephine is the house girl caring for Missus Lu in 1852 Virginia. She was purchased with her mother and brought to Mister’s farm almost seventeen years ago and she has rarely left the property since. Serving the family in the house is a better position than most have – Missus Lu would sometimes let her draw or paint with her, but it doesn’t protect her from Mister’s abuse or Missus Lu’s increasingly erratic behavior. For the second time in her short life, Josephine has decided to run.

The brief was not finished. Lina Sparrow, first-year litigation associate, took another sip of cold coffee. Her eyes flipped from her computer screen to the digital clock glowing red on the wall: 11:58 P.M.  Get it to me Wednesday, Dan had said. 

Lina has just been given a potentially career making case – seeking reparations from various high profile companies and the government for the slaves who toiled and died in the United States. At home she lives with her artist father who is about to open a highly anticipated show and who is finally ready to discuss Lina’s mother’s death after nearly 20 years. 

 

Past and present collide when, as Lina struggles to put a human face on her case, she discovers that paintings of slaves long attributed to LuAnn Bell may have been done by Josephine.

 

The House Girl is Tara Conklin’s first novel.

 

Check for available copies of The House Girl by Tara Conklin at the Circulation Desk or through our catalog where you can find the book, CD, or Large Print edition. E-book and e-audiobook format are accessible through Digital Downloads. The title is also available for checkout on a pre-loaded Nook or iPad in the Reference Department.

Please join us for our discussion on the September 24!
