Little Deaths by Emma Flint

It's 1965 in a tight-knit working-class neighborhood in Queens, New York, and Ruth Malone--a single mother who works long hours as a cocktail waitress--wakes to discover her two small children, Frankie Jr. and Cindy, have gone missing. Later that day, Cindy's body is found in a derelict lot a half mile from her home, strangled. Ten days later, Frankie Jr.'s decomposing body is found. Immediately, all fingers point to Ruth. As police investigate the murders, the detritus of Ruth's life is exposed. Did Ruth Malone violently kill her own children, is she a victim of circumstance--or is there something more sinister at play?

The South St. Paul Book Discussion group has been enjoying lively discourse on books since January 2000. The group meets the 2nd Thursday of the month from 7-8:30 pm. Everyone is welcome! The group meets in the library meeting room, and will often host an author or speaker to further enhance that month’s book selection.

Anyone interested in joining a book club is encouraged to come and meet other avid readers!
