The Afternoon Book Group will be held online monthly as a Zoom event. Contact Sarah Letnes at to find out the book selection for each month, how to obtain the book from the Montgomery County Library's online site, and how to log onto the Zoom teleconference site for the group meeting to discuss the book.

The October book will be She Come By It Natural: Dolly Parton by Sarah Smarsh. Growing up amid Kansas wheat fields and airplane factories, Sarah Smarsh witnessed firsthand the particular vulnerabilities—and strengths—of women in working poverty. Meanwhile, country songs by female artists played in the background, telling powerful stories about life, men, hard times, and surviving. In her family, she writes, "country music was foremost a language among women. It's how we talked to each other in a place where feelings aren't discussed." And no one provided that language better than Dolly Parton.

The group will meet on the second Thursday of each month from 3:00m to 4:30pm. Zoom contact information:
