Join us for the March Book Club! We will be reading and discussing Sugar Run by Mesha Maren, one of Kirkus Review's «12 Excellent Books for Your Book Club.»

Old Town friends and community members will gather to discuss this highly anticipated debut novel; we are lucky to have Casey Bridgers from @caseythereader facilitating the discussion.

This event is free and open to the public; Purchase of the book at Old Town Books is not required, but is much appreciated. Take 15% off the in-store purchase of Sugar Run by mentioning the book club.

About the book: In 1989, Jodi McCarty is seventeen years old when she’s sentenced to life in prison. When she’s released eighteen years later, she finds herself at a Greyhound bus stop, reeling from the shock of unexpected freedom but determined to chart a better course for herself. Not yet able to return to her lost home in the Appalachian Mountains, she heads south in search of someone she left behind, as a way of finally making amends. There, she meets and falls in love with Miranda, a troubled young mother living in a motel room with her children. Together they head toward what they hope will be a fresh start. But what do you do with your past—and with a town and a family that refuses to forget, or to change? Set within the charged insularity of rural West Virginia, Mesha Maren’s Sugar Run is a searing and gritty debut about making a break for another life, the use and treachery of makeshift families, and how, no matter the distance we think we’ve traveled from the mistakes we’ve made, too often we find ourselves standing in precisely the place we began.
