|Book Discussion with Judy Levin: "The Cailiffs of Baghdad, Georgia"|
Event Type: Adults|
Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Time: 11:30 AM
This year’s "One Book" selection takes us to the small town of Three Step, Georgia, in 1938, when a new, worldly schoolteacher comes to town. Miss Grace Spivey believes in field trips, Arabian costumes, and reading aloud from "The Arabian Nights." Populated by unforgettable characters -- including three impressive camels -- "The Cailiffs of Baghdad, Georgia" rides a magic carpet from a segregated schoolroom in Georgia to the banks of the Tigris (and back again) in an entrancing feat of storytelling. Take time this summer to meet the Cailiff family and be transported to another place and time.Vernon Area Public Library District
