Join us on Saturday, April 12th at 1:30 pm in the Community Room for a discussion of The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis. New members welcome!
In 1923, fifteen-year-old Hattie Shepherd, swept up by the tides of the Great Migration, flees Georgia and heads north. Full of hope, she settles in Philadelphia to build a better life. Instead she marries a man who will bring her nothing but disappointment. Hattie gives birth to nine children and vows to prepare them for an unkind world. Their lives, captured in twelve luminous threads, tell the story of a mother’s monumental courage– and a nation’s tumultuous journey. (Publisher’s Description)
