The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

Tuesday • December 3 • 1pm

Bellevue Store

Alaska, 1920: a brutal place to homestead, and especially tough for recent arrivals Jack and Mabel. Childless, they are drifting apart–he breaking under the weight of the work of the farm; she crumbling from loneliness and despair. In a moment of levity during the season's first snowfall, they build a child out of snow. The next morning the snow child is gone–but they glimpse a young, blonde-haired girl running through the trees.

Join us on the first Tuesday of each month at 1pm. Bring your lunch and talk books with us. Feed your body and your mind. Book club members save 20% when you purchase this title at our Bellevue store.
