September Book Club Selection

The September selection for the Hempstead County Library Book Club is Hush by Jacqueline Woodson. We will discuss the book on Monday, October 9th at 6:00pm. Join us!

“A powerfully moving novel from a three-time Newbery Honor-winning author.

Evie Thomas is not who she used to be. Once she had a best friend, a happy home and a loving grandmother living nearby. Once her name was Toswiah.

Now, everything is different. Her family has been forced to move to a new place and change their identities. But that’s not all that has changed. Her once lively father has become depressed and quiet. Her mother leaves teaching behind and clings to a new-found religion. Her only sister is making secret plans to leave.

And Evie, struggling to find her way in a new city where kids aren’t friendly and the terrain is as unfamiliar as her name, wonders who she is.

Jacqueline Woodson weaves a fascinating portrait of a thoughtful young girl’s coming of age in a world turned upside down.”
