Bartram Trail Book Club

The Red TentMonday, May 18 @ 7pm


The Bible hints at the story of Dinah in the Book of Genesis. She is only mentioned in relation with her father Jacob and his dozen sons. The Red Tent, told in Dinah’s voice, offers insight in the turmoil and traditions of ancient womanhood. The novel begins with the story of her mothers—Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah—the four wives of Jacob. Their love for Dinah shows in the gifts they bestow upon her; gifts that sustain her through a hard-working childhood, midwifery, and a new home in a place foreign to her. Through Dinah’s eyes, the reader will discover a remarkable period of history and create a connection with the past. New members are always welcome!

Bartram Trail Book Club: Orphan Train

Monday, September 21 @ 7pm

Orphan TrainBetween 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 pure luck.
