Books-Sandwiched-In Starts March 6
CLEARFIELD – The Clearfield Branch of AAUW will hold its annual Books-Sandwiched-In series at the Joseph & Elizabeth Shaw Public Library on Wednesdays throughout March.
Each year the AAUW organizes several book reviews presented by local book lovers and authors. Speakers share information about a selected book, while the audience enjoys a delicious meal prepared by the event organizers.
AAUW: Books-Sandwiched-In 2013 begins at 12 p.m. March 6. Sharon Gregory will present Paula McLain’s novel The Paris Wife, the story of author Ernest Hemingway and his love affair with his first wife, Hadley. According to the description of the book, Ernest, surrounded by women and other authors, struggles to find the voice that will earn him a place in history, while Hadley strives to hold on to her sense of self as the demands of life with Ernest grow costly and her role becomes more challenging. Despite their bond, they eventually find themselves facing the ultimate crisis of their marriage, a deception that will lead to the unraveling of everything they’ve fought so hard for.
The cost for the lunch provided is $4. The proceeds from the program funds AAUW’s Interrupted Studies Scholarship Program.
Reservations for the AAUW: Books-Sandwiched-In 2013 series may be placed by contacting Shaw Public Library at 814-765-3271 during regular business hours.
