Readers at this Ulster County library gather on the last Monday of every month to share their feelings on the book club's latest choice. In May, club members will discuss the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel following the fictional character, Daisy Goodwill Flett. Follow Daisy through vivid descriptions of her life. Go with Daisy along her struggles and triumphs from her birth in rural Manitoba, to her journey with her father to southern Indiana, to her years as a wife, mother and widow, to her old age. Pick up your copy of this novel at the library and learn more about the book club. Enjoy a delicious, healthy breakfast (that you don't have to cook!)
