Travlin' Book Club

Please join the Travlin' Book Club, Monday, March 18, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at the library.

The Travlin' Crystal Community Book Club has chosen two books for this book club discussion, SMALL GREAT THINGS by Jodi Picoult. Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more than 20 years experience. During her shift, Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told she's been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don't want Ruth to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene?


DEAR MARTIN by Nic Stone. Justyce McAllister is top of his class and set for the Ivy League--but none of that matters to the police officer who just put him in handcuffs. And despite leaving his rough neighborhood behind, he can't escape the scorn of his former peers or the ridicule of his new classmates. Justyce looks to the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for answers. But do they hold up anymore?
