This month's selection is "Big Stone Gap" by Adriana Trigiani. It's 1978 and Ave Maria Mulligan is the thirty-five-year-old self proclaimed spinster of Big Stone Gap, a sleepy Hamlet in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. She's also the local pharmacist, the co-captain of the Rescue Squad, and the director of The Trail of the Lonesome Pine, the town's long-running Outdoor Drama. Ave Maria is content with her life of doing errands and negotiating small details-- until she discovers a skeleton in her family's formerly tidy closet that completely unravels her quiet, conventional life. This book is available one month prior to discussion. Adults. Room 1.
