September Book Discussion

Strength in What Remains: a journey of remembrance and forgiveness by Tracy Kidder

"A young man arrives in the big city with two hundred dollars in his pocket, no English at all, and memories of horror so fresh that he sometimes confuses past and present. When Deo first told me about his beginnings in New York, I had a simple thought: "I would not have survived." And then, two years later he enrolls in an Ivy League university. How did this happen? Where did he find the strength, and howhad he won the beneficence of strangers? How had it felt to be him?" ----from Strength in What Remains

Join us on Monday, September 26th at 7:00 p.m. in the library to discuss this compelling story. Copies of the book are available at the library.
