Wellness Book Club with the author

The Dry Grass of August, by Anna Jean Mayhew

Thursday, Sept. 21, at  2 p.m.
Meeting Room C, Chapel Hill Public Library 

Open to ALL Town employees, dependents and pre-65 retirees!


Join fellow employees – AND Anna Jean Mayhew, the author – to discuss the book 

In this beautifully written debut, Anna Jean Mayhew offers a riveting depiction of Southern life in the throes of segregation and what it will mean for a young girl on her way to adulthood and for the woman who means the world to her. 

On a scorching day in August 1954, thirteen-year-old Jubie leaves Charlotte, North Carolina, with her family for a Florida vacation. Crammed into the Packard along with Jubie are her three siblings, her mother, and the family’s black maid, Mary Luther. For as long as Jubie can remember, Mary has been there cooking, cleaning, compensating for her father’s rages and her mother’s benign neglect, and loving Jubie unconditionally.

Facilitated by Anggie Thompson, CHPD Administrative Assistant
