SPL's adult book discussion

to feature 'The Whip'

SALEM- "The Whip" by Karen Kondazian is the book choice for the November meeting of Salem Public Library's Adult Book Discussion Group at 7 p.m. Nov. 26 at the library, 821 E. State St.

"The Whip" is inspired by the true story of a woman, Charlotte "Charley" Parkhurst (1812-1879), who lived most of her extraordinary life as a man. Charley Parkhurst was one of the finest stage coach drivers Wells Fargo had during the dangerous gold rush days. But there's one thing Wells Fargo never knew about Charley: Charlotte was a woman. In her fiction debut, actress Kondazian dares to imagine the life such a dedicated disguise artist might have lived.

No registration is required. Copies of the book are available in advance of the meeting in the Adult Services Department.
