before we were yoursWe’re to be partnering with the Senior Center for this book club. Whether you are a senior or just a book lover who can join us during the day, we hope you’ll join us!

Please join us in person as we read and discuss Before We Were Yours by Katherine Wingate. Based on one of America’s most notorious real-life scandals—in which Georgia Tann, director of a Memphis-based adoption organization, kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country—Lisa Wingate’s riveting, wrenching, and ultimately uplifting tale reminds us how, even though the paths we take can lead to many places, the heart never forgets where we belong.

We’ll have some copies of the book at the library or you can order it from our online catalog.

No registration necessary, just show up!
