Hawkins Memorial Library February Book Club Selection

Pigs in Heaven by Barbara Kingsolver is the Book Club selection for February. This is the tale of Turtle and Taylor Greer, a Native American girl and her adoptive mother who have settled in Tucson, Arizona, as they both try to overcome their difficult pasts. But when a lawyer for the Cherokee Nation begins to investigate the adoption, their new life together begins to crumble.

Depicting the clash between fierce family love and tribal law, poverty and means, abandonment and belonging, Pigs in Heaven is a morally wrenching, gently humorous work of fiction that speaks equally to the head and the heart.

Stop at Hawkins Memorial Library to pick up a copy of this book and join the group at 1 PM on Monday, February 19, for the discussion.
