Orphan Train

PAM Book Club and Out to Lunch Bunch
For November: Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline

The Mensa Book Club will meet on Monday, November 10, 2014 at 11am at the Earth Fare Supermarket Community Room.

Our focus book will be 2013's Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. From the author's website: "Between 1854 and 1929, so-called orphan trains ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest, carrying thousands of abandoned children whose fates would be determined by luck or chance. Would they be adopted by a kind and loving family, or would they face a childhood and adolescence of hard labor and servitude?" Please join us for what is sure to be a fascinating discussion. One of our regular attendees was personally acquainted with an orphan train rider and will share her story with us.

For a change of pace, we will have lunch in our private community room at EarthFare, which offers a hot lunch bar, pizza slice selections, and a deli station. We'd love to see you there!
