Book Club SIG Meeting  (Special Interest Groups)
10:00 am to 11:30 am
Zoom Meeting, see registration information below

The Book Club Special Interest Group meets every other month via zoom to discuss a specific book (with a genealogy slant) chosen by participants. Members discuss each book as well as questions related to genealogy research used in the book. Book genres vary and may be non-fiction as well as fiction, including historical fiction and mysteries.

Our current selection is Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. Between 1854 and 1929, so-called orphan trains ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest, carrying thousands of abandoned children whose fates would be determined by pure luck. Would they be adopted by a kind and loving family, or would they face a childhood and adolescence of hard labor and servitude?

As a young Irish immigrant, Vivian Daly was one such child, sent by rail from New York City to an uncertain future a world away. Returning east later in life, Vivian leads aquiet, peaceful existence on the coast of Maine, the memories of her upbringing rendered a hazy blur. But in her attic, hidden in trunks, are vestiges of a turbulent past.

Seventeen-year-old Molly Ayer knows that a community service position helping an elderly woman clean out her home is the only thing keeping her out of juvenile hall. But as Molly helps Vivian sort through her keepsakes and possessions, she discovers that she and Vivian aren't as different as they appear. Molly is also an outsider being raised by strangers, and she, too, has unanswered questions about the past.
