At the Grems-Doolittle we like to keep things fresh and exciting. And that is why we have planned a book discussion for My name is Mary Sutter, this year’s one county one book selection. I haven’t started reading it yet myself, but the novel focuses on a female doctor in Albany New York at the beginning of the Civil War. As the story moves, Mary ends up in Washington D.C. and we encounter the realities of the war through her eyes as a physician and as a woman.
Several copies of this book are available through the Schenectady County Library so start reading! The discussion will be held at the Grems-Doolittle library, on 32 Washington Ave, Schenectady on Saturday March 26th. We are scheduled to begin at 1pm and will probably wrap things up around 3pm. If you are interested in attending please contact us at the library, either by calling us at 374-0263 or emailing the librarian at email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you then and hearing your perspective on the book!
And also, just as an announcement: If you didn’t already know, we have extended our hours on Thursday nights until 8pm. So if you are free on a Thursday night, stop by the historical society for a tour of the museum or a look through the library.
