Book club usually meets the last Tuesday of each month in the Morgan House library. Due to Christmas being on the last Tuesday, book club has been pushed back one day to Wednesday, December 26. The meeting will still be held in the Morgan House at 6 pm. The schedule will resume as normal starting in January 2019.

For its final book of 2018, book will club read and discuss Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass by Frederick Douglass. The preeminent American slave narrative first published in 1845, Frederick Douglass’s Narrative powerfully details the life of the abolitionist from his birth into slavery in 1818 to his escape to the North in 1838, how he endured the daily physical and spiritual brutalities of his owners and driver, how he learned to read and write, and how he grew into a man who could only live free or die.
