Learning to Speak Southern to be September’s title

UPDATE: This Book Group Meeting will take place virtually via Zoom. Due to increasing rates of local COVID cases, the library wants to prevent program attendees from possible exposure. You will receive a link to our Zoom meeting shortly before we meet at 6:00 pm on Thursday, September 16.

PASO ROBLES, CA – August 1, 2021 The Library Book Group will return to its face-to-face format beginning Thursday, September 16, 2021. Discussions will be held at a new time, 6:00-7:00 pm, in the Library Story Room

September’s title is Learning to Speak Southern by Lindsey Rogers Cook. It is available in print through the Black Gold Library System and as an eBook or audiobook on the hoopla digital platform. Lex fled Memphis years ago, making ends meet with odd jobs teaching English around the world. She only returns when she has no choice, when her godmother presents her with a bargain she can't refuse. Lex has never understood her mother, who died tragically right before Lex's college graduation, but now she's got a chance to read her journals, to try and figure out what sent her mother spiraling all those years ago. The Memphis that Lex inhabits is more bourbon and BBQ joint than sweet tea on front porches, and as she pieces together the Memphis her mother knew, seeing the lure of the world through her mother's lush writing, she must confront more of her own past and the people she left behind. Once all is laid bare, Lex must decide for herself: What is the true meaning of family?

Space is limited. Registration is required for each participant. For ages 16+.

The Library is open Monday-Friday 9-7 and Saturday 9-4. Curbside service is available during open hours. Masks are required. Call the library at 805-237-3870 or visit prcity.com/library and the Library Facebook and Instagram sites for more information.
