Monthly Book Discussion
The Lincoln Public Library hosts a book discussion group that meets on the last Thursday of each month at 6:30PM in the Program Room. All are welcome to attend. On Thursday, August 25th, we will be discussing The Moon Sisters by Therese Walsh.

The Moon SistersThis mesmerizing coming-of-age novel, with its sheen of near-magical realism, is amoving tale of family and the power of stories.

After their mother's probable suicide, sisters Olivia and Jazz take steps to move on with their lives. Jazz, logical and forward-thinking, decides to get a new job, but spirited, strong-willed Olivia who can see sounds, taste words, and smell sights is determined to travel to the remote setting of their mother's unfinished novel to lay her spirit properly to rest.

Already resentful of Olivia's foolish quest and her family's insistence upon her involvement, Jazz is further aggravated when they run into trouble along the way and Olivia latches to a worldly train-hopper who warns he shouldn't be trusted. As they near their destination, the tension builds between the two sisters, each hiding something from the other, until they are finally forced to face everything between them and decide what is really important.
