The July Members’ book club read is James McBride’s 2013 National Book Award Winner The Good Lord Bird. A highly entertaining portrait of life on the Kansas-territory with John Brown and his army of abolitionists, Henry Shackleford, a formerly enslaved child sweeps us up in the action as he is taken under John Brown’s wing – who believes Henry is a girl, his good luck charm, and nicknames Little Onion.
Read along in the Museum’s summer book club that includes both the new and noteworthy and Concord classics. Whether you are on the beach, a mountain, or your sofa members can join us virtually for monthly reads, discussions, and themed cocktails all summer long. Book club meetings will be held remotely over Zoom.
