We are fully out of the Holiday season and enjoying 2016 so far! We hope you are also.
We are still very excited about the Dayton Area BIG READ title THE ORPHAN TRAIN by Christina Baker Kline. Stop by and pick up your copy and join the rest of the community in reading this fantastic book! This deeply satisfying novel sheds light on an almost forgotten period in America's past. There was a time in the early 1900s when many orphaned or abandoned children were "shipped" west on trains to be taken in by homesteaders, sometimes as loved members of a new family, but oftentimes they were treated as indentured servants. The story is told by a 91 year old woman who had been on an orphan train in her youth and she recounts the experience to a modern-day teen. It's a powerful story that has received marvelous reviews.
