Program Description


What memories do you have of the house in which you grew up? Did the architecture or design of the house affect you?

Miriam Jackson, Cultural Affairs, will give us a tour of the Thoroughgood House with information about the originating family dwelling there. We will tie this to our book discussion of The Dutch House by Ann Patchett, a novel about a house and how it impacts the families who reside in it. Historical fiction, this family saga spans several generations. 

After you register you may pick up a copy of the book at the Central Library or call 385-0150 to reserve. Available in hardcover, large print and audio. Also available for check out on Hoopla and Overdrive with your VBPL library card.

Adults. Registration required.
