Garden Reads Book Club

Gardeners and book lovers, join the Mill Creek University Book Store on the last Sunday of every month to discuss fiction and non-fiction books about nature.

On Sunday, February 25th, join the book store at 4:00 pm to discuss “The Vine Basket” by Josanne La Valley.

Things aren't looking good for 14-year-old Mehrigul. She yearns to be in school, but she's needed on the family farm. The longer she's out of school, the more likely it is that she'll be sent off to a Chinese factory—perhaps never to return.

Her only hope is an American woman who buys one of her decorative vine baskets for a staggering sum and says she will return in three weeks for more.

Mehrigul must brave terrible storms, torn-up hands from working the fields, and her father's scorn to get the baskets done. The stakes are high, and time is passing.

Book club members, save 20% when you purchase this title at the Mill Creek store.
