Our group of Tuesday Night Readers meet to discuss this month’s selection, The Kitchen House, by Kathleen Grissom. This historical novel portrays another side of slavery in the United States through the eyes of Lavinia, a young Irish girl. Orphaned while sailing to America, she arrives at a tobacco plantation to live and work in the kitchen house with the master’s slaves. Over time she becomes entwined in the world of the slaves and the life of the family in the big house. The Kitchen House is a tragic story of page-turning suspense, exploring the meaning of family, love and loyalty. Non-members who are interested in joining are welcome to attend the meeting as guests.
