Adult Historical Book Club-Virtual

September 3, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Librarian Dawn will discuss historical fiction book The Tumbling Turner Sisters by Juliette Fay in a live Google Meets session.

It’s 1919, and the Turners are barely scraping by. When their father loses his job, their irrepressible mother decides that vaudeville is their best chance to make the rent—and create a more exciting life for herself in the process. Traveling by train from town to town, teenagers Gert, Winnie, and Kit, and recent widow Nell soon find a new kind of freedom in the company of performers who are as diverse as their acts. There is a seamier side to the business, however, and the young women face dangers and turns of fate they never could have anticipated.
