Central Library - Rundel Auditorium, 3rd floor, Central Library’s Rundel Building.
Age Level: Adult
Finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else, how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations.  

The ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most.

Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe—from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful.

Refreshments will be provided. No reservations are required.

Group Moderator:  Carol Moldt
Librarian, Central’s Literature Division
