Monessen Public Library Book Club

The Monessen Public Library Book Club will meet on Thursday, March 14, 2019, at 10:30 AM.

This month’s book is “Valley of Decision” by Marcia Davenport. Originally published in 1942, The Valley of Decision was an instant success, and its story of four generations of the Scott family—owners and operators of a Pittsburgh iron and steel works—has since captured the imagination of generations of readers. Absorbing and complex, it chronicles the family’s saga from the economic panic of 1873 through the dramatic rise of American industry and trade unionism, through waves of immigration, class conflict, natural disaster, World War I, and Pearl Harbor. In 1945 it was made into a major motion picture starring Greer Garson and Gregory Peck. Contact the Library to reserve a copy of the book! 724-684-4750.
