Evening Book Club @ Scotch Plains Library: The Kitchen House

​On Monday, April 15 at 7 pm, the Evening Book Club will discuss The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom.  Orphaned onboard a ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives at a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of the master's illegitimate daughter, she becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family. Eventually accepted into the world of the big house, with its absent master and mistress battling opium addiction, Lavinia straddles two very different worlds. Then she is forced to make a choice.
