Due to the significant increase in positive cases of COVID-19 in Lewis County and the potential closure of area schools, the Brantingham-Greig Reading and Technology Center will be providing only curbside service beginning November 21st. Our primary goal is to protect our patrons and support the request from county officials to help in efforts to reduce exposure.
Curbside service worked well prior to our brief in-person opening and we are confident that we will be able to meet patron needs. To that end, Mary Dixon is working to establish links in the Google documents listing books to summaries in Good Reads. Directions will be available on the website at bhmgreads.org, along with a refresher on how to access curbside service. Those directions are also listed below.
Please, if you know of anyone who does not have email or computer access, we are asking our community to pass on this information and to support each other in continuing to access materials from the center through curbside service. Thank you for your understanding and support.
November 18th, 10:00 a.m. by Zoom.
The book will be The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson.
The Zoom link will be sent out ahead of time. Have your coffee ready at your computer!
We will not meet in December.
January 20, 2021 will be the book The Scent Keeper by Erica Baumeister.
February 17th will be the book The Henna Artist by Alka Joshi.

The Winemaker’s Wife by Kristin Harmel
"From the author of the "engrossing" (People) and "poignant" (Booklist) international bestseller The Room on Rue Amelie comes a remarkable and moving story of love, danger, and betrayal: two women in France in the darkest days of World War II and another in present-day America on a quest to uncover the secret that connects them. At the dawn of the Second World War, Ines is the young wife of Michel, owner of the House of Chauveau, a small champagne winery nestled among rolling vineyards near Reims, France. Marrying into a storied champagne empire was supposed to be a dream come true, but Ines feels increasingly isolated, purposely left out of the business by her husband; his chef de cave, Theo; and Theo's wife, Sarah. But these disappointments pale in comparison to the increasing danger ...
