Books Sandwiched In

At 11:30 a.m. March 12, retired educator Betty Barrett will review the book “Orphan Train” by novelist Christina Baker Kline. The book recalls the orphan trains that ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest, carrying thousands of abandoned children whose fates would be determined by luck or chance.

“I was so moved by this book,” Barrett said in a media release. “The characters of Molly and Vivian are brave, difficult, true hearted women. Join me at Book Sandwiched In and we will journey with them through a story of heartbreak and history.”

Lunch will be served by The Methodist Women and costs $3.
