Come and engage in lively discussions of wonderful books! The first fifteen minutes of our virtual meeting will be dedicated to socializing and getting to mingle, followed by an hour-long discussion of this month's book. We will typically meet on the first Thursday of every month, and new members are always welcome and encouraged to join.
The book we will be discussing: City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert
About the book:
'All my life I had known there was a secret. What I hadn’t known: the secret was me.’
In the spring of 2016, Dani Shapiro received the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. Months earlier, on a whim, she had submitted her DNA to a genealogy website for analysis. The results were astonishing and revealed that everything she had believed about her life had been a lie.
Shapiro’s parents were no longer alive. With no one to turn to and only a handful of figures on a webpage, Shapiro set out to discover the truth about herself and her identity.
Inheritance is a genetic detective story; a memoir that reads like a thriller. It is a book about family secrets kept out of shame or self-protectiveness; secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. It is a book about the extraordinary moment we live in, where science and technology have outpaced both medical ethics and the capacities of the human heart to contend with the consequences of what we discover."
