Book Club: "Echo Mountain"
Join Marathon City staff and fellow readers in a discussion of Wolk's 2020 book that was marketed to young readers, but will likely give older readers a thrill and some happiness, too!
During the Great Depression Ellie and her family have lost nearly everything - including their home. They have started over, carving out a new life in the unforgiving terrain of Echo Mountain. Ellie has found freedom, a new strength, and a love of the natural world that now surrounds them. But there is little joy, even for Ellie, as they all struggle with the sorrow and aftermath of an accident that left her father in a coma. Urgent for a cure to bring her father back, Ellie is determined to try anything. Following her heart, and the lead of a scruffy mutt, Ellie will make her way to the top of the mountain, in search of the healing secrets of a woman known only as "the hag."
No registration required and new people are always welcome to join the discussion! Call the Marathon City Branch at 715-443-2775 for more information.
