Author Margaret Zhao led our first day-time book group, and it was such a success that the group wanted to continue. We now read a book of the group’s choice “a book a month,” focusing on books portraying social and/or historical relevance. After reading, we gather to discuss the book. The idea is to share our impressions of the book and our own life experiences. Please join us and bring a friend!
March: Ginny Moon by Benjamin Ludwig. Ginny Moon is our 13-year-old narrator of the novel bearing her name. She has autism and has been abused by her birth mother for her first 9 years of life. She finally gets her “forever family” but she’s still trying to make sense of a world that just doesn’t seem to add up. This is a novel that reads so true, probably because the author, Benjamin Ludwig, and his wife fostered and adopted an autistic teenager. This one promises to be a very compelling read!
