The Hartington Public Library would like to thank the Farm Credit Services of America, Yankton for the Agriculture Book donation to our library
in honor of their 100 years in service!
The Library’s Book Club will be meeting on Monday, October 3rd at 7:00pm to discuss the book, A Thousand Acres by Jane Smiley
Summary; When Larry Cook, the aging patriarch of a rich, thriving farm in Iowa decides to retire, he offers his land to his three daughters. For Ginny and Rose, who lives on the farm with their husbands, the gift makes sense-a reward for years of hard work, a challenge to make the farm even more successful. But the youngest, Caroline, a Des Moines lawyer, flatly rejects the idea and in anger her father cuts her out-setting off an explosive series of events that will leave none of them unchanged. A classic story of contemporary American life, A Thousand Acres strikes at the very heart of what it means to be a father, a daughter and a family!
