The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe – October 16, 2019
A memoir from the son of a woman being treated for pancreatic cancer. Time waiting with his mother for her treatments led the pair to talk about books, not unusual for a book reading family but what set the stage for this book club of two was the timing and place.
The Knitting Circle by Ann Hood – November 20, 2020
Loss forces change in people and often keeps them from remembering who they are. This is the story of a mother who lost her only child and the community that surrounded her and helped her tell her story.
Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck & Fortune by Roselle Lim – January 18, 2020
In this debut novel, we meet a young woman who is miles away from her mother and years away from their last conversation when the mother dies. Natalie does go home when she hears the news. She is unsure what the world of home will look like and how she will fit in. Perhaps it will take a helping of courage and a change of heart to make sense of the past and step into the future.
February book TBD – stay tuned!
