Bring your lunch and join us for a discussion of the novel "Orphan Train" by Christina Baker Kline, a touching story of two women, one now in her 90s and one age 18, as they find commonalities in their backgrounds as foster children. Library Journal says, "With compassion and delicacy, Kline presents a little-known chapter of American history and draws comparisons with the modern-day foster care system."
