6:30 PM - 8:00 PMTHE HUB BOOK AND BREW REVIEW



Location:  Maple River Restaurant , 87 S. Maple Avenue, Port Jervis, NY 12771
Contact:  
Description:  Novel for April:  Where They Found Her by Kimberly McCreight
Location:  Maple River Restaurant , 87 S. Maple Avenue, Port Jervis, NY 12771
Synopsis from GoodreadsAt the end of a long winter, in bucolic Ridgedale, New Jersey, the body of an infant is discovered in the woods near the town’s prestigious university campus.  No one knows who the baby is or how her body ended up out there.  But there is no shortage of opinions.
 
When freelance journalist and recent Ridgedale transplant Molly Anderson is unexpectedly called upon to cover the story for the Ridegdale Reader, it’s a risk (given the severe depression that followed the loss of her own baby). But the bigger threat comes when Molly unearths some of Ridgedale’s darkest secrets -- including a string of unreported sexual assaults that goes back twenty years.
 
Meanwhile, Sandy, a high school dropout, searches for her volatile and now missing mother; PTA president Barbara struggles to help her young son, who’s suddenly having disturbing outbursts.
 
Told from the perspectives of Molly, Barbara, and Sandy, Kimberly McCreight’s taut and profoundly moving novel unwinds the tangled truth about the baby’s death, revealing that these three women’s lives are more intertwined than they ever could have imagined.
Facilitators:  Kate Gessner & Taylor Sauschuck
Charge:  Free except food, beverage, and occasionally the book
There is a waiting list to join this group.  Contact Kate or Taylor to secure a place on the list.
