MPCA Book Club - Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
Tuesday, April 25, 2017, 07:00pm - 09:00pm

Our April 25th book will be Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. 

“Lydia is dead. But they don’t know this yet.” So begins this exquisite novel about a Chinese American family living in 1970s small-town Ohio. Lydia is the favorite child of Marilyn and James Lee, and her parents are determined that she will fulfill the dreams they were unable to pursue. But when Lydia’s body is found in the local lake, the delicate balancing act that has been keeping the Lee family together is destroyed, tumbling them into chaos.

A profoundly moving story of family, secrets, and longing, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, uncovering the ways in which mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and husbands and wives struggle, all their lives, to understand one another.

Our May 23rd book will be Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi.

We meet from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month in the Lower Hall, 602 22 Ave NW.  Everyone is welcome to attend to enjoy discussing books (and snacks!) with those with similar interests in a fun, casual atmosphere.

Location 602 22 Ave NW
