Book Club: The Language of Flowers

March 18 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

“The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patiences, & red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it’s been more useful in communicating mistrust & solitude. After a childhood spent in the foster-care system, she is unable to get close to anybody, & her only connection to the world is through flowers & their meanings. Now eighteen & emancipated from the system with nowhere to go, Victoria realizes she has a gift for helping others through the flowers she chooses for them. But an unexpected encounter with a mysterious stranger had her questioning what’s been missing in her life. When she’s forced to confront a painful secret from her past, she must decide whether it’s worth risking everything for a second chance at happiness” (Amazon).

Join Library Assistant Brenda Jones & fellow book club members for an in-person chat about The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. Available in regular print, large print, & audiobook through MeL. This title is also available in ebook & e-audiobook from Libby. Whether you attend regularly or this is your first meeting—all participants are welcome!
Registration required.
