Book discussions, 'Just the Facts' at Plumb Library

Jun 12, 2018

The Council on Aging Book Group will meet on Tuesday, June 19, at 10:15 a.m. at Plumb Memorial Library. Up for discussion is "How Green Was My Valley," by Richard Llewelyn.

The novel is about a Welsh mining family at the end of the 19th century. It was made into a movie by director John Ford and featured a young Roddy McDowall as the narrator, Hu. Copies are available at the library.

“Just the Facts,” the Nonfiction Book Group, will be discussing Mark Kurlansky’s The Basque History of the World on Tuesday, June 19, at 6:30 p.m.

Straddling a small corner of Spain and France in a land that is marked on no maps except their own, the Basques are Europe’s oldest nation without having become a country. Learn more about this culture by picking up a copy of the book at the library.

The June book for Café Parlez Book Discussion Group is "Blood, Bones, and Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef," by Gabrielle Hamilton. The book follows an unconventional journey through the many kitchens Hamilton has inhabited through the years before she opened her acclaimed New York restaurant, Prune. Discuss the book on Thursday, June 28, at 6:30 p.m.

The Plumb Memorial Library is located at 17 Constitution Way, Rochester.
