Our county CEOS program is holding its book club discussion on April 19, 2021 at 10 a.m. here in the Extension Office. The featured book is Dirt by Mary Marantz. "Dirt is a story about the places where we start. From a single-wide trailer in the mountains of rural West Virginia to the halls of Yale Law School, Mary Marantz's story is one of remembering our roots while turning our faces to the sky. From growing up in that trailer, where it rained just as hard inside as out and the smell of mildew hung thick in the air, Mary has known what it is to feel broken and disqualified because of the muddy scars leaving smudged fingerprints across our lives. Generations of her family lived and logged in those hauntingly treacherous woods, risking life and limb just to barely scrape by. And yet that very struggle became the redemption song God used to write a life she never dreamed of."
If you plan to attend please email Cathy Smith so we will know if we have enough space or whether we need to find an alternate location (we can only have space for five people in our back room given social distancing requirements). Masks required.
