HERMISTON — A historical novel about a desperate Albanian woman is the topic of the upcoming Hermiston Public Library book club discussion.
Bookminders will discuss “The Sworn Virgin” by Kristopher Dukes. The group, which is free and open to anyone, meets Wednesday, Dec. 13 at 1:30 p.m. at The Pheasant Bar & Grill, 149 E. Main St., Hermiston.
After reading about the tradition of a sworn virgin — women who vow chastity while dressing as men — Dukes was intrigued. The author spent five years researching the topic and writing the book.
The book club meets the second Wednesday of each month. Copies of the book are available at the library. For more information, call 541-567-2882.
