Fiction Book Group: History of Love

Tuesday, March 9, 2021

Join us as we discuss the book Washington Post calls "at least as heartbreaking as it is hilarious."

This month we'll be discussing "The History of Love," by Nicole Krauss.

A long-lost book reappears, mysteriously connecting an old man searching for his son and a girl seeking a cure for her widowed mother's loneliness.
