January Book Club

 

January Book Club will be hosted by Catherine March ’14 and Matthew Nagowski ’05. They have selected Everything I Never Told You, the debut novel of Celeste Ng.

From the Los Angeles Times:
“Excellent…an accomplished debut… heart-wrenching…Ng deftly pulls together the strands of this complex, multigenerational novel. Everything I Never Told You is an engaging work that casts a powerful light on the secrets that have kept an American family together—and that finally end up tearing it apart.”

RSVP to Celinda Crego ’79 at cac432@aol.com.
