Delta Arts Book Club – The Lost Quilter

Join the Delta Arts Book Club as we discuss “The Lost Quilter” by Jennifer Chiaverini, from the Elm Creek Series. “The Lost Quilter” continues the story of Joanna, a runaway slave, introduced in The Runaway Quilt by the same author. After her capture and forced return into slavery, Joanna longed to return to Elm Creek Farm where she left behind her infant son in the care of the Bergstrom family. This is the story of Joanna’s courageous quest to reach freedom and reunite with her son, beautifully told against the backdrop of slavery. A testament to the strength of the human spirit. This book is available at your local Barnes & Noble retailer or on-line by clicking here.  This event is free and open to the public.
