The Get Lit Pop Up Book Club finishes up 2019 at Stem Ciders in the ever-evolving RiNo (River North) neighborhood with a discussion of Tracy Chevalier's At the Edge of the Orchard. Set in the harsh pioneer years of the 1830s-50s, the novel focuses on Robert Goodenough, the most special of the many children born of the fractious union of James and Sadie Goodenough. Chevalier's excellently researched novel brings to life a seminal chapter in American history, reaching from the frontier swampland of Ohio to the seedy towns of California in the Gold Rush. And you'll learn alot about apples, too!
Book discussion with optional cider/pairing flight ($20 p/p) with back room notes from Stem Cider masters!
