Smithfield Critics Book Discussion Group

December 21, 2016
Carnegie Library Of Pittsburgh - Downtown 612 Smithfield St. , Pittsburgh, PA

The Smithfield Critics meet at 12:00 pm on the third Wednesday of each month. This month’s selection is: 'At the Edge of the Orchard" by Tracy Chevalier In 1838, James and Sadie Goodenough have settled where their wagon got stuck - in the stagnant swamps of northwest Ohio. They and their five children work relentlessly to tame their patch of land, but the orchard they plant sows the seeds of a long battle. In 1853, their youngest child Robert is wandering through Gold Rush California. Restless and haunted by the broken family he left behind, he has made his way alone across the country. But you can run only so far, even in America, and when Robert's past makes an unexpected appearance he must decide whether to strike out again or stake his own claim to a home at last.
