The August meeting of Northwest Mississippi Community College’s Reading Roundtable, made possible with funds from Sycamore Bank, will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 27 at 2 p.m., in the R.C. Pugh Library on the Senatobia campus.
Courtney Hicks, reference librarian, thinks The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh will be a crowd pleaser. The New York Times states, “The overriding emotional message of The Language of Flowers has to do with family. Victoria, the main character, desperately wants one, but she thinks she is too damaged to learn how to live. A likelier outcome: a great big bouquet of aster (patience), daffodil (new beginnings) honeysuckle (devotion), hyacinth (constancy) and moss (maternal love) will await her in her flowery future.” The book includes a flower dictionary compiled by the author.
The purpose of the program is to provide a forum for lifelong learners to read and discuss a variety of books during the course of every semester. Librarians and faculty at Northwest will lead the discussions. Meetings will be held on the last Tuesday of each month.
Participants must fill out a registration form, and those wishing to purchase a copy of the book being discussed may do so for $5. Personal or library copies may also be used.
