Bath Library Book Club discusses "Shanghai Girls"
May and Pearl, sisters living in Shanghai in the mid 1930s, are beautiful, sophisticated, and well-educated, but their family is on the verge of bankruptcy. Hoping to improve their social standing, their parents arrange for their daughters to marry Chinese men who have come from Los Angeles to find brides. Books may be picked up at the Bath Library; hours are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 9:00am to noon and 1:00pm to 6:00pm and Saturdays 9:00am to noon. Anyone with an interest in reading and conversing about books is welcome to attend. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
