This month’s book:

Book cover of Truevine by Beth MacyTRUEVINE

(Click the title to search our catalog and place a hold on the book.)

Beth Macy, master chronicler of life in the South, combines exhaustive research, exclusive interviews and sources, and attention to detail in this riveting American story about race, greed, and a mother’s love. George and Willie Muse from Truevine, Virginia were two little boys born in a brutal time, sharecropping a field in the segregated South, stolen away by a white man offering candy, and set on a path of events that would forever change their lives–and their family’s destiny.

A discussion guide with author bio, interview excerpt and discussion questions is available here.
