UPDATED: We have plenty of copies of The Leavers by Lisa Ko at the library. Stop by today to pick up a copy!
Lisa Ko’s powerful debut, The Leavers, is the winner of the 2016 PEN/Bellwether Prize for Fiction, awarded by Barbara Kingsolver for a novel that addresses issues of social justice.
Set in New York and China, The Leavers is a vivid examination of borders and belonging. It’s a moving story of how a boy comes into his own when everything he loves is taken away, and how a mother learns to live with the mistakes of the past. (From the publisher.)
It is also our next Evening Book Club read! Pick up a copy of the book or audiobook from Griffin Free and then join us for on Wednesday, June 6 at 6:30 PM for a lively discussion.
This group also has a Facebook page that you may join and is led by our volunteer Shannan Welsh.
