May Book Club Read

May is a great month to join the Hurley Library Book Club!  We are currently looking for more people who love reading, love talking, and love…delicious baked goods! If this sounds like you, please join us Thursday, June 16th. It’s a good time to join the book club because we are having a general book lovers’ discussion with a sneak peak of some of the new books hitting the Hurley Library shelves soon! The Book Club pick for this month is The Last Painting of Sarah De Vos, by Dominic Smith.

lastpainting-895From the Kirkus Review:
“Smith’s latest novel is a rich and detailed story that connects a 17th-century Dutch painting to its 20th-century American owner and the lonely but fervent art student who makes the life-changing decision to forge it. This is a beautiful, patient, and timeless book, one that builds upon centuries and shows how the smallest choices—like the chosen mix for yellow paint—can be the definitive markings of an entire life.”

 Thursday June 16th, at 7pm.
