Cold Spring Book Club: The Water is Wide (Pat Conroy)
Tuesday, January 15, 2019
10:00 am - 11:30 am
The Cold Spring Book Club meets every month on the third Tuesday at 10am. It’s a diverse group of people who love to read and share their thoughts. Everyone is welcome to come!
About this month’s book:
The island is nearly deserted, haunting, beautiful. Across a slip of ocean lies South Carolina. But for the handful of families on Yamacraw Island, America is a world away. For years the people here lived proudly from the sea, but now its waters are not safe. Waste from industry threatens their very existence unless, somehow, they can learn a new way. But they will learn nothing without someone to teach them, and their school has no teacher—until one man gives a year of his life to the island and its people.
