The Retired Readers Book Group invites you to join our monthly book discussion at the Newburyport Senior Community Center, located at 331 High Street in Newburyport. This group meets on the second Wednesday each month. This month's title is: The Daring Ladies of Lowell by Kate Alcott.
Moving to the mill city of Lowell in 1832 to escape farm life, young Alice is disillusioned by the local factory's harsh working conditions and struggles to advocate on their behalf while recklessly falling in love with the mill owner's son, a situation that is complicated by a murder and sensational trial.
Books are available for request via the library catalog. No registration is required.
