The Ligonier Valley Library's "Titles & Tea" Book Discussion Group normally meets once a month at 3:00 pm on a Wednesday. The group focuses on both fiction and non-fiction titles with engaging story lines, strong characterizations and interesting settings. Tea and snacks are provided, but a small donation is requested to cover the cost of the refreshments. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own tea cups and saucers or favorite goofy mug to share and show off.

Book Discussion - Wednesday, September 24, at 3:00 pm.
The secrets, struggles, and self-redemption of a Depression-era coal miner's wife and three daughters play out against a turbulent historical backdrop of Ku Klux Klan intimidation and the 1933 Pennsylvania Mine War. Their intertwined lives eerily mirror the 7th century legend of St. Barbara, patroness of miners, reenacted annually in the town pageant. Tested by scandal, heartbreak, and tragedy, each woman will write her own courageous ending to St. Barbara's story.
