This year’s Community Book Read is The Bone Garden by Tess Gerritsen. Tess will be at the library on October 9. Three programs related to The Bone Garden will be held in September with two book discussions in October and a program on Indiana’s medical history.
At the beginning of The Bone Garden Julia Hamill sets out to plant a garden-what she finds is a skeleton dating from the 1800’s. Dr. Rick Jones, state archaeologist, will cover the Historic Preservation and Archaeology statute in Indiana that affords protection to human remains dating before 1940. He will include discussions and questions about situations, complexities, and issues.
