Girl in Hyacinth Blue to be discussed at the book group

Book Ends, the book discussion group at the Jackson County Public Library, will gather for the first time in the new library at 7 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 12, to discuss the book Girl in Hyacinth Blue by Susan Vreeland.

Girl in Hyacinth Blue is the story of a professor who invites a colleague to his home to see a painting that he has kept secret for decades. The professor tells his guest that the painting was by the famous Dutch painter, Johannes Vermeer. The question arises as to why he had hidden this important work for so long. Throughout the book, the ownership of the painting is traced back three and a half centuries to its origins, one owner at a time.

The Book Ends group will continue the second Monday of alternate months. Book selections will announced in advance and extra copies of the selected books will be available at the library.
