[ARCHIVED] Mitchell Public Library Zoom Book Club to Discuss These Ghosts are Family by Maisy Card

Zoom Book Club

The Mitchell Public Library Zoom Book Club will discuss These Ghosts are Family by Maisy Card on July 12th at 5 P.M. Those interested in joining the book club can register at the link below or contact Zack North at 605-995-8480 or

Below is the publisher’s note for the novel:

“These Ghosts Are Family revolves around the consequences of Abel’s decision and tells the story of the Paisley family from colonial Jamaica to present day Harlem. There is Vera, whose widowhood forced her into the role of single mother. There are two daughters and a granddaughter who have never known they are related. And there are others, like the house boy who loved Vera, whose lives might have taken different courses if not for Abel Paisley’s actions.

These Ghosts Are Family explores the ways each character wrestles with their ghosts and struggles to forge independent identities outside of the family and their trauma. The result is an engrossing portrait of a family and individuals caught in the sweep of history, slavery, migration, and the more personal dramas of infidelity, lost love, and regret. This electric and luminous family saga announces the arrival of a new American talent.”
