Not Just for Young Adults Book GroupMonday June 12, 2023
7:30 PM until 8:30 PM
Join us on Monday June 12th at 7:30pm, in room 202 for the "Not Just for Young Adults" Book Group’s discussion of Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch.
Description: “It has always been just Lina and her mom, Hadley, and Lina's been fine with that. But when Hadley dies of cancer, her final wish is for 16-year-old Lina to go to Italy for the summer to meet her father. When she arrives at his home, she finds her mother's journal awaiting her—words that recount Hadley's year in Italy and her experience of love as she honed her craft as an artist. Lina comes to know her mother through new eyes while falling in love for the first time with a cute Italian boy. This poetic novel is replete with opportunities for discovery, including Lina's exploration of the beautiful Tuscan countryside and her newfound relationship with her father. The journal works to parallel Lina's and Hadley's lives across generations and gives tension to the narrative. Lina is a likable heroine in spite of her flaws, and readers will be caught up in this story of romance, family, and what it really means to be loved. .”
