6:30 and a Book
Northampton Area Public Library's book discussion group will be meeting on Wednesday, June 26th. The book being discussed is Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson. If you would like to participate in the discussion, please call or stop by the library to get the book.
From the back of the book:
"During the summer of 1793, Mattie Cook lives above the family coffee shop with her widowed mother and grandfather. Mattie spends her days avoiding chores and making plans to turn the family business into the finest Philadelphia has ever seen. But then the fever breaks out.
Disease sweeps the streets, destroying everything in its path and turning Mattie's world upside down. At her feverish mother's insistence, Mattie flees the city with her grandfather. But she soon discovers that the sickness is everywhere, and Mattie must learn quickly how to survive in a city turned frantic with disease."
