Book of the Month: "Two Old Women"
Join our Athens staff and others for a ongoing discussion of Two Old Women: An Alaska Legend of Betrayal, Courage and Survival by Velma Wallis!
Based on an Athabascan Indian legend passed along for many generations from mothers to daughters of the upper Yukon River Valley in Alaska, this is the suspenseful, shocking, ultimately inspirational tale of two old women abandoned by their tribe during a brutal winter famine.
Stop by the Athens Branch to pick up a copy of the book along with some comments and questions to get you thinking about it!
