November Book Club

November Book Club will meet at the home of Celinda Crego ’79. Celinda has selected the bookOrphan Train by Christina Kline. This is a novel based on actual orphan trains that carried orphans to the Midwest.

Foster teen Molly is performing community-service work for elderly widow Vivian, and as they go through Vivian’s cluttered attic, they discover that 

their lives have much in common. When Vivian was a girl, she was taken to a new life on an orphan train. These trains carried children to adoptive families for 75 years, from the mid-nineteenth century to the start of the Great Depression. (from Booklist)

There are MANY copies of the book in the Buffalo and Erie County library, in different formats.
