Join us for our next library book club meeting on Thursday, May 17th at 6pm!
We meet each month in the library reading room to discuss a novel. It works best if everyone has read the book before the event.
This month we’ll discuss “When We Were Orphans" by Kazuo Ishiguro.
About the book:
"England, 1930s. Christopher Banks has become the country's most celebrated detective, his cases the talk of London society. Yet one unsolved crime has always haunted him; the mysterious disappearance of his parents, in Old Shanghai, when he was a small boy. Now, as the world lurches towards total war, Banks realises the time has come for him to return to the city of his childhood and at last solve the mystery — that only by his doing so will civilisation be saved from the approaching catastrophe.
Moving between London and Shanghai of the inter-war years, When We Were Orphans is a story of memory, intrigue and the need to return; of a childhood vision of the world surviving deep into adulthood, indelibly shaping and distorting a person's life."
We look forward to seeing you there!
