Bookmarks: Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind
Friday, June 17, 2:00pm

book coverPat Mitchell will review Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind by Ann B. Ross. Miss Julia, a recently bereaved and newly wealthy widow, is only slightly bemused when one Hazel Marie Puckett appears at her door with a youngster in tow and announces that the child is the son of Miss Julia's late husband. Suddenly, this longtime pillar of her small community finds herself in the center of an unseemly scandal and the guardian of a nine-year-old whose mere presence turns her life upside down. With razor-sharp wit and perfect "steel magnolia" poise, Miss Julia speaks her mind about a robbery, a kidnapping, and the other disgraceful events precipitated by her husband's death. The Westchester Public Library will also host this review on Thursday, June 16 at 2:00pm at the Westchester Township Historical Museum in Chesterton.
